“Non fuit in solo Roma peracta die”.
"Rome was not built in a day. Step by step, we evolved our aesthetics, we developed new colours, we explored new forms. It is important to remember who your are and what you stand for.
RES/REI has been manufacturing hand-assembled eyewear since 2011. A distinctive design coupled with an excellent handmade production have helped to make RES/REI a brand recognized for quality and innovation. RES/REI focus on blending crafts and design. We make frames that are carefully crafted to last years and to age beautifully. RES/REI aims is to give credit to the Italian craftsmanship. For this reason RES/REI is completely made in Italy, from the first idea to the final product. In a consumeristic society, in which object are disposables, quality is a big part of RES/REI. Also personality is important to RES/REI. We design frames that are not just a little bit unique, but can make you look a little bit unique too.
RES/REI means "the thing" in latin. It means an existing object, with substance and form; but it also means a concept, an idea.
Oculi sunt in amore duces, in love the eyes are our guides. Everything is about passion: from the ambition to make an innovative project, to the enthusiasm of working closely with artisans that build each frame by hand. If, in love the eyes are our guides, RES/REI is a new way to look at the world.
RES/REI is Handmade in Italy with love."
