The Rough, Express your true character
The crown jewel of Dandy’s collection are the frames produced from sheets that have been left unrefined, just as they come from the supplier, from the English “rough”. Cellulose acetate is hand-refined using milling and the scraping blade to highlight the qualities of the materials as well, as the design of the frames. Dandy’s Rough line came about from the desire to demonstrate the processing of the eyewear to both the optician and the client.
Conversely, the apparent poverty of the product demonstrates the care and complexity that goes into the various hand worked stages.
The Rough line is produced in limited quantities; they can come in many colours, but it is also possible that just one pair is produced in a particular colour.
