VANNI is an independent brand of creative eyewear design, born in Turin in 1987. VANNI is where limited-edition industry meets Italian artistry in a mix of genius, culture, and style, never accidental: it’s a distillation of more than thirty five years of research, history and experimentation.
Our commitment to excellence is evident in every detail of our glasses.
We meticulously select the finest materials, from premium acetates to superior metals, to ensure durability, comfort and feeling of wellbeing, making our glasses a true reflection of Italian quality and innovation.
TRANSPARENCY is one of our founding values and for us it means being able to tell and trace every step of the production process, which of course all takes place in Italy. This choice allows us to enhance and export the concept of Made in Italy and Italian 'savoir-faire' all over the world, as well as to significantly reduce our carbon footprint.
Our entire production process can be found within about 400 km from our headquarters.
Thinking and producing in an eco-compatible way means prioritizing the protection of our relationship with nature, today and in the future. Translated into industry chain terms, this means controlling every phase of the production process, responsibly.
The materials of the VANNI glasses are processed in a way that limits waste, slowing down the production of moulds and equipment, limiting packaging, using recyclable materials as much as possible.
For eyewear it’s considered the most precious and sophisticated material: it’s the only plastic substance not derived from petroleum; it comes from natural origins, extracted from tufts of cotton.
The exclusive block acetate used to realise the VANNI collections is in like a work of art, a mix of craftsmanship and millimetric precision.
Unique and yet recognisable. Like a painter that creates colours and spreads them on canvas, VANNI invents materials and transforms them into frames.
The lighter and more comfortable the better when it comes to eyewear. VANNI’s metal frames are made from steel sheets well under a millimetre thin. The sheets are cut in a process called photoengraving; a sophisticated technology that comes in handy when working with incredibly small dimensions.
Then there’s laser cutting, used to make frames with even thinner metal; an incision process that fuses the metal using a powerful ray beam.
We believe that glasses are more than just an accessory:
they are a statement of personality and individuality
