Ballo frames are handmade in Woodstock, Cape Town. At the core of every eyewood frame is a unique combination of recycled paper and off-cut timber, which are laminated together with a bio resin. This gives our frames durability and allows any pair of Ballo to be fit with prescription lenses. We then finish each pair with either off-cut timber; up cycled Denim; ShweShwe or domestic Buffalo horn. Each frame is fitted with either high quality polarized lenses or CR39 UV400 revo mirror lenses, and spring hinges.
We created an interactive site that allowed the passengers to view the catalog of glasses, place them over a face and scroll through them. The channel included videos and a purchasing option via Zapper, where they would be delivered directly to the customer.
