    Acetate eye glass frames are essentially plastic. They are otherwise known as a material called zyl, which is one of the most popular types of frame materials in the eye frame industry. Now almost 2/3 eyeglasses are acetate glasses frames in that acetate glasses frames can be made in hundreds of colors, purple, black with gray, red, blue, gold, etc. And they are cheaper than quality frames. Quality frames require high skilled and great materials because they are too hard to design shapes and carve cartoons. While acetate glasses frames are extremely lightweight and soft which allow designers to create them in any ways. Acetate frames are derived from renewable resources and it can reduce source wasting. Also, acetate glasses frames stand in front of any eyeglasses for their changeable colors and shapes, such as big black cat eyeglasses, round eyeglasses, ray-ban sunglasses. All in all, acetate glasses frames are the typical fashion items among famous people and ordinary people.
