Our frames technology
Eco Responsible Frames
Our plant-based frames are built to last and endure for as long as it takes. We chose the best of both worlds without compromise. The planet comes first but so is quality and reliability. The Green Grilamid, the revolutionary plastic polymer from which our frames are made, is sourced directly from Switzerland.
The base material used for our frames is derived from the Castor Plant, a highly renewable resource that can be transformed and processed to achieve the level of quality standards Helios is known for.
The Castor Bean is harvested from the Castor Plant and processed into oil which is finally transformed into our Green Grilamid pellets. Those are then melted and injected to form the most fashionable renowned and recognizable shapes on the market!
By using this material, we are able to craft sunglasses that are highly resistant to extreme temperature, have shape memory, are flexible and lightweight, comfortable to wear and most importantly have minimum impact on the environment. This is indeed the best of both worlds.
We are using revolutionary fully green and organic material in the form of wood fibers and coconut fibers in some of our frames.
While those materials can be a bit less resistant and durable than our Green Grilamid, they look great, feel great and does absolutely no harm to the planet!
Have you ever looked for your mobile phone while talking to someone on the said phone? Yep we want you to forget that you are wearing one of our frames. This is the level of comfort we aim for.
Our sunglasses and optical frames are designed and built in such a way that using the already lightweight Green Grilamid, they provide the wearer with a level of comfort which is amongst the best on the market.
That said, this does not mean that they will drop off your face that easily. We want them to stay on and protect your eyes all day long. The frames and hinges work in a way that they will fit perfectly on your face. Our diversified collection will make sure of it.
Our frames have shape memory, a technical term to basically say that they remember in what shape they are supposed to be in. They are disciplined glasses! (Not smart yet, getting there).
While bending the frame is possible thanks to the highly flexible Green Grilamid, it will always go back to its original shape. This technical feature will ensure that your frames can withstand a lot before breaking and will never be out of shape!
The Green Grilamid also has an interesting benefit; it is highly resistant to extreme temperature and will retain its characteristics when exposed to heat or cold. For instance, the frame will not get damaged if left on your car dashboard. They are built to endure!
