Pure Dutch manufacture

During the Silmo in Paris, everyone’s eye was caught by a very impressive photo of the interior of a sunny eyewear factory. It turned out to be the stand of Frame Holland where the viewer got a clear picture of this pure Dutch product.

The plastic and metal collection of Preciosa are designed, developed and produced in the factory in Burgerveen. Although part of the manufacturing process has been taken over by machines, crucial stages of the production process are still manual. This applies to the manufacturing and assembly of the parts, the polishing of the acetate glasses, the final inspection and the polishing of the glasses before they go into the case. The frames are made from bioacetate – a plastic made from cotton and wood pulp – by Mazzucchelli from Italy.

Frame Holland is the last remaining eyewear factory in the Netherlands. The current owners of the company each have their own expertise. Menno Borsboom designs the glasses, his brother Hans manufactures them and his sister Saskia ensures that they are placed on the shelves of specialized opticians. They are supported by ten employees in the office and five in the field.
