Eyeglasses that express the art of being yourself
Put on a pair of Etnia Barcelona eyeglasses to announce your desire to go beyond – beyond the rules and beyond the moments of contemporary fashion. At Ray Dahl Optical & Optometrists, we are proud to offer Sidney a full collection of Etnia Barcelona eyeglasses.
Etnia Barcelona, an independent eyewear brand born in 2001, was established by David Pellicer. As a free-spirited teen, he began working at his father’s eyeglasses factory at age 17. Over time, he assumed responsibility of all daily operations. Inspired by the rich and colorful history of Spain, it was then that Etnia Barcelona began to emerge as the creative and reputable company that turned the eyewear industry on its head.
A discovery of color
Why limit your optical look to brown, black, and steel-gray? Etnia Barcelona offers eyeglasses in every imaginable hue. We invite you to explore the beautiful display in our Sidney office to find the color combination that best conveys your personality and mood.
Commitment to quality
To build each pair of Etnia Barcelona eyeglass frames, pulverized cotton and acetone is mixed together into a paste before color is added. Various pressing processes are then put into motion before the acetate is cured, cut, and laminated. At that point, it is set in molds and shaped into a block form – where it ages for about 12 weeks. Once the blocks are removed from their molds, the material is cut precisely according to the desired measurements. The last step is to form the high quality, durable acetate sheets into Etnia Barcelona frame fronts and temples.
The superior quality of Etnia Barcelona doesn’t stop with the frames. The lenses are all crafted from everlasting mineral compositions, such as Barberini crystal lenses for the sunglasses.
Focus on artistic design
Anyone who chooses Etnia Barcelona eyeglasses is making a public statement about their discerning eye for great design. These frames are made for those who dare to look further than conventional norms, into where revolutions are made. Each pair of frames is regarded as a work of art, and every design detail is considered.
Some of the world’s most esteemed artists have provided the creative inspiration for Etnia Barcelona’s recent lines of eyeglasses. Every collection embodies a sense of innovation, hinting to the works of cultural artists such as Steve McCurry, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Nobuyoshi Araki. A glance through the Etnia Barcelona eyeglasses in our Sidney store will remind you of visits to an art gallery.
