Penzers dips into France for some Exalto frames for men

The company that manufactures Exalto in Jura, France, says “Exalto frames are the perfect combination of purity, stylish design and silent beauty.

Exalto frames are a masculine collection made of patented – or unique hinges – coming from a genuine partnership between engineering and design. Exalto was proud to win the gold Silmo d’Or award for ‘Technological Innovation’ at the Silmo Fair 2016. The sophisticated technological system is hidden behind the apparent simplicity of the hinge design. It features a metal wire that is firmly attached to the temple and attaches to the frame front. The carefully studied design for the hinge is a screw less patented spring mechanism that is aesthetically pleasing, as well as functional.

Exalto translated from Latin to English means “to raise high,” which sums up the industry award-winning brand, Exalto. Exalto frames feature a combination of simplicity in form and function from the creative team at Oxibis Group that started in 1992. Six years after the inception of the Oxibis line, creators Jerome Colin and Daniel Arnaud decided to branch out into a masculine and refined line geared towards gentlemen. Since 1998, Exalto has been handmade in the Jura area of France. Jura is known throughout Europe for excellence in eyewear and its quality artisans that specialize in spectacle making.
