PERFECTING FIT THROUGH SUPERIOR OPTICS, HERITAGE MATERIALS, AND TIMELESS STYLE.
At SALT. Our product philosophy centers around finding the delicate balance of optics, materials, and style to achieve the perfect fit. We do this by combining our extensive knowledge of optical properties, high standards of Japanese craftsmanship, and deep passion for eyewear heritage. This allows us to create each SALT. Frame with the quality, function, and style that will last for generations.
HEIRLOOM QUALITY THAT LASTS FOR GENERATIONS
We’re not thinking in terms of seasonal trend, we’re thinking in terms of generations. Each SALT. Frame utilizes functional pins, riveted hinges, and specific thickness transitions that guaranty your frames can be adjusted and repaired over time, providing the perfect fit for decades to come.
100% JAPANESE ACETATE
SALT. is committed to using only the most premium handmade cellulose acetate in the world. Our acetate is created from cotton seeds and wood pulp, which allows it to be hypoallergenic and sustainable. We partner with Takiron Rowland, a Japanese acetate factory that has been producing handmade acetate for the better part of 100 years.
100% JAPANESE AEROSPACE GRADE TITANIUM
SALT. Aerospace grade Japanese titanium provides a stunning strength to weight ratio, giving even bold frames a featherweight feel. Our titanium is hypoallergenic and is engineered to maintain perfect optics. Proprietary titanium thickness transitions and bevel placement provide stability where needed most, securing the lens properly in the frame. This means that any stress on the frame is not transferred to the lens, greatly improving any optical situation.
Each piece of SALT. Eyewear is designed with an understanding of prescription lens surfacing, providing the highest optical experience to the wearer. SALT.’S proprietary lens offering utilizes the most advanced coatings, filters, and optics to create an optimized viewing field. Incorporating a depth of knowledge of how the human brain interprets visual information taken in by the eye, SALT. Has engineered lenses that deliver the perfect balance of color, contrast, and light transmission. Our lenses open up a new world of sight, and allow the user to perform at their peak, with the highest level of protection.
100% JAPANESE POLARIZED LENSES
Everyday we consume a world of reflected light. Light entering our eyes is constantly moving and in flux, creating what we perceive as glare. Working with the highest optical grade glass and cr-39 materials, SALT. Superior polar lenses channel this reflected light, eliminating glare and optimizing the viewing field.
SALT. PROPRIETARY WELLNESS COATINGS
Even when wearing sunglasses, UV rays can enter your eye from reflected light on the backside of the lens. These unwanted light rays can contribute to the harms of UV exposure to both the eyes and the skin around the eyes. Salt. Wellness anti-reflective coating greatly reduces the amount of reflected light, protecting your eyes and skin in any light condition.
DESIGNED BY OPTICIANS
From the first pencil stroke to the last prototype, we implement bevel positioning and thickness transitions to ensure superior optics in each frame.
