Algha Works Eyewear – Traditional Frames Made in England

Founded in the ’20s by Max Wiseman and sons with its origins in a Rathneau, Germany, family owned East London-based eyewear manufacturers Algha Works keep it traditional. Using styles and techniques employed in their early days, the company produce fine, handmade sunglasses and prescription frames with their trademark rolled gold,  24k, with a thicker layer of 14k covering a flexible nickel core. The start of the show has to be the round wire ‘Panto’ frame with its delicate and striking silhouette. A tricky shape for some, your other options include the always appropriate Aviator and a selection of equally impressive acetate models. Find them all here.
