Eco-friendly eyewear: Estiara Milano

Exclusive and eco-friendly in Amanite®

With the special aesthetic of the material and its particular and unique patterns and colours, Estiara Milano – a glasses brand first created in the 1950s – is achieving special recognition for the eco-friendly 100% recyclable qualities of their colorful material called Amanite®, produced by Sintetica Srl.

The material (originating in liquid form) is a thermoplastic polymer developed for Estiara by Sintetica Srl. Possessing various qualities including being eco-friendly, non toxic, hypoallergenic and 100% recyclable, it is also very light and heat resistant, meaning that the sides or temples of the glasses do not require a metal core. The style of the finish of these designs is luxurious with the added benefit that each frame is completely unique in its patterning, depth of tone and balance of colours which replicate – with sophistication and creativity, the natural effects of materials like mother of pearl, marble or horn.

About : Sintetica Srl was first created in the early 50s in Milan by Dr. Guitart Delisau, a Spanish chemist; in a few years the business becomes a leader in the production of acrylic sheets. In time, the company has focused its efforts on quality, innovation and service.

Antonio Carlos Guitart, the current CEO, took over the company in 1995 and embraced his father’s entire project. Motivated by a passion for beauty, he resumed his father’s ambitious goal of creating an innovative material specifically developed for eyewear.  Find out more  about this Italian label today at
