INSPIRED BY GENERATIONS OF ARTISANS AND CRAFTSMEN WHO CAME BEFORE US, WE’VE DEDICATED OUR LIVES TO THE MASTERY OF OUR ART FORM.
There are no shortcuts to quality, so innovative designs, luxurious materials and old world craftsmanship are only the beginning. We manufacture in some of the world’s oldest and most respected factories dedicated exclusively to producing eyewear.
Like samurai swordsmiths from a bygone era, artisans and Master Craftsmen with as many as 50 years dedicated to perfecting their crafts employ a costly and laborious combination of traditional and modern production techniques.
CREATING A SINGLE DITA FRAME CAN TAKE AS MANY AS 320 SEPARATE PRODUCTION STEPS OVER 8 MONTHS.
Our 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 we polish our acetate frames.
Unlike brands that commercially process massive quantities of acetate frames as quickly and cheaply as possible, we prefer to slowly tumble our acetate frames in genuine, hand-cut bamboo chips of varying shapes and sizes. In addition to utilizing a renewable resource, our 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.
