It was first discovered back in 1737. Ever since, the tiny pink flowers with the white and wooly stalk has fascinated early summer hikers. Need we say the Fjällspira can only be found in the very northern parts of Sweden?

Recycled steel

Steel is one of the most naturally sustainable materials we have. It can be used time and time again without losing any quality or strength. Since Sweden is a country very rich in steel, it is a matter of course that EOE uses Swedish and mainly recycled steel in all metal frames. The steel (AISI301) comes from Sandvik industries.

Friendly acetate

The acetate used in all EOE frames is made out of a mix of wood and cotton pulp. The process for the making of the cellulose acetate contains a treatment of two different fibers; seeds (cotton) and wood (from conifer and broadleaf deciduous trees). Both wood and cotton are renewable resources and available and easily accessible in our very close nature. What separates the EOE biodegradable acetate to the acetate that is normally used for eyewear, is foremost that it doesn’t contain any petroleum or phthalates – which are considered to be so poisonous it’s even forbidden in the production of toys and children’s products.
