Colosseum Tortoiseshell


Inspired by the world wonder in Rome. The Colosseum Tortoiseshell is a classic frame shape, which features hand placed ethically sourced Merbau wood accents on the front of the frame. The Merbau wood is ethically sourced then treated to protect from natural de-colorization. The sleek temple is designed with matching Merbau wood to compliment the design aesthetic of the wood used in the front of the frame. The back earpiece of the temple is designed with Tortoiseshell acetate to compliment the Tortoiseshell acetate used during production. The earpiece may be functionally used to adjust the frame as needed by an eyecare professional. On top of the frame reads, CARPE DIEM – meaning ‘Seize the Day’ in Latin and MMVIII – the year Jamal Robinson began designing sunglasses, starting the DESIAR brand.

The Tortoiseshell frame is handled over 100 times throughout the production process.
