The acetate used is easy to trace through the supply chain as the suppliers are few and well established. Components come mostly from Japan or Germany, with up to seven different suppliers contributing parts for each pair.
Elk glasses are made collaboratively with an independent operator Hint, who is a small, Hong Kong designer trading under the name DH Solutions. Making eyewear is reliant on many different and highly specialised components and suppliers.
Hint facilitates these processes for us Elk. They have visited the suppliers at each stage of the process, despite its length and complexities.
