In 2009, inspired by a recent finding of a pair of military goggles buried in a glacier since the Second World War, Mirko and Eric came up with a new eyewear concept combining craft and technology, industrial-grade surgical steel and cotton fabrics. Fast forward three years and Hapter was born, also thanks to a collaboration with master weavers Lanificio F.lli Cerruti who provided 132 years of experience in creating luxury fabrics.
The cotton fabric is treated with a bio solution designed to prevent any stains and fraying of the raw edges.
Each fabric used is tactically different, with a different thread count, some soft and some natural and coarse. Here are my favourite!
