Titanium is a relatively common chemical element- but one that does not occur in its pure form in nature. In order to produce titanium as a commodity, the minerals rutile or ilmenite have to be reduced down. During this process, liquid iron collects at the bottom of the electric arc furnace and is then tapped. Hence the warrior-tough name for our collection Born from Iron. Titanium is extremely stable yet flexible as well as corrosion-resistant. These qualities make the material an ideal choice for manufacturing glasses and sunglasses.
