      How to make a goggle out of plants

      The frames are made of plant-based non food derivates from corn. Through our process they are modified into polymers and become pellets that are injected with color. The dye process ensures a superior durability and depth of colour.
      This vastly improves colour performance, durability and scratch resistence. The process also spares workers and the environment from exposure to hazardous solvents and chemicals. The details on the frames are made out non food resin and castor bean derivates.
