From natural horn to sterling silver, RIGARDS frames have forged an instantly recognisable style that combines offbeat aesthetics with a quiet elegance, much of which pertains to their spirited craftsmanship and unique use of traditional materials. No less compelling are the signature finishes, imparting nuance and character to the frames and creating a distinctive bespoke element. The aesthetics of RIGARDS are not considered conventionally beautiful and their designs are influenced by the incredible textures and patterns formed by mother nature.
The emphasis is on handmade craftsmanship applied to simple products using natural materials. The designs are original and nonconformist, intended for discerning individuals who appreciate ingenuity and independent spirit.
Every pair of frames is handcrafted with tremendous attention using time-honoured methods of production and hand-finished with signature surface treatments, combining virtues of the past with modern sensibility.
