Creating a single DITA frame can take as many as 320 separate productions steps over 8 months. Their manufacturing process delicately balances traditional and modern production techniques and technologies carefully selected at each stage to generate the best result. A perfect example of DITA’s uncompromising production philosophy is the way in which they polish acetate frames. Unlike brands that commercially process massive quantities of acetate frames as quickly and cheaply as possible, DITA prefers to slowly tumble acetate frames in genuine, hand-cut bamboo chips of varying shapes and sizes. In addition to utilizing a renewable resource, traditional bamboo polishing process results in a deeper, richer, higher quality finish that you’ll immediately see and feel the moment you hold a DITA frame in your hands.
