We’re very excited about the next step in our journey, moving our manufacturing to Zhejiang, China. We have big plans for Lexxola and everyone knows China leads the way in manufacturing. We’re proud to be working with a manufacturer that uses cutting-edge technology and has industry-leading corporate responsibility and sustainability practices.
Don’t worry, the Lexxola’s you love aren’t changing (actually they’re improving), we're sticking to the same designs and materials, just making them in a new advanced environment.

Since 1849, Mazzucchelli has created much of the best acetate in the world, which makes your Lexxola glasses a real investment piece. This material is derived from cotton and turned into cellulose acetate, a transparent raw base for adding colour. Each time an acetate sheet is made, technicians save a sample in order to recreate the pattern later. All Mazzucchelli acetate goes through this repetitive weeks-long process in order to achieve the desired colour patterns and quality.
