Hi guys,

My brother and I founded a bespoke eyewear company. All of our pieces are handmade by the two of us out of solid buffalo horn or wood, and adorned with precious stones that are a seamless component of the frame. Every frame is tailored specifically for the individual, though we have a library of shapes that we can base the design off of, if you don't have something particular in mind.

Basically, I'm posting a couple of product shots with a few questions.

1) Assuming you are interested in luxury eyewear, how interested would you be in having a frame tailor made for you?

2) Most buffalo horn frames on the market retail at the $1000 price point. If you were able to purchase a bespoke buffalo horn frame at $2000 that also contains at minimum $800 retail of precious stones and 18k gold, would you consider this a reasonable value?

3) Would you be more interested in buffalo horn or wood, and why?

Thanks, I appreciate you guys immensely and hope you have an awesome day.

No bump once more. Last one. The stone on this temple is petrified wood that is an estimated 77 million years old; this tree was likely growing and living when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.

I went out of my way to ensure there's no branding marked or shown; I honestly just want some opinions from a design and market perspective. My product isn't available to the general public regardless; we are by selective appointment only.

Also, I actually asked the mods before I posted this to do my best to ensure it met reasonable standards of non-shillery. Seal of approval, so far as I know.

But I understand why you'd feel that way; I don't like being shilled at either. But I was curious what opinions I could get on my work, so here we are.

Various countries around the globe, foremost being India, Thailand, and South Korea. It is a byproduct of the meat industry.

Buffalo horn has a long history of being among one of the best materials to make glasses from. It is extremely lightweight, typically lighter than plastic, and actually forms to fit the wearer over time. It's a living material that ages and changes to take on a patina with wear. Every piece is unique and no two can ever be the same.

Top horn manufacturers around the world include companies like Morgenthal Frederics, Hoffman, ROLF, and Ralph Vaessen.

So, the reason we chose to produce glasses from buffalo horn is because we are marketing to the luxury sector and it is an exquisite material.

>implying there is no one on a fairly large public image board who purchases or appreciates hand made luxury goods.

Yes, I see you speak for the trees, Mr. Lorax. I’ll be sure to make a hasty exit.
