Cellulose acetate at F.O.C.A. was cured and aged (stagionato). After being heated and set, it was allowed to rest for months like a fine cheese or wine. This process stabilized the acetate, forming a dense consistency which lends a rich, substantial hand and helps the frames retain their shape through heavy wear and high temperatures.

FOCA Di Cadore

This small region in the Dolomites is the birthplace of Italian eyewear design and production. In the 18th century, the first glasses were crafted here using revolutionary lenses made by Venetian glass artisans. Cadore was home to the first Italian eyewear company, launched in the late 19th century by Angelo Frescura, Leone Frescura and Giovanni Lozza. By the early 20th century, 90% of all eyewear produced in Italy was made in Cadore. The end of WWII brought a period of groundbreaking innovation and unbounded positivity, and marked the birth of F.O.C.A. - Fabbrica Occhiali Celluloidi e Affini.
