About Rigards

From natural horn to sterling silver, RIGARDS frames have forged an instantly recognizable style that combines offbeat aesthetics with a quiet elegance, much of which pertains to our spirited craftsmanship and unique use of traditional materials. No less compelling are the signature finishes, imparting nuance and character to the frames and creating a distinctive bespoke element.

AVANT-GARDE DESIGN
Nominated for the best sunglasses during Silmo d’Or 2017, we are drawn to aesthetics that are not considered conventionally beautiful. Our designs are influenced by the incredible textures and patterns formed by mother nature.

TRADITIONAL MATERIALS
The emphasis is on handmade craftsmanship applied to simple products using natural materials. The designs are original and nonconformist, intended for discerning individuals who appreciate ingenuity and independent spirit.

HANDMADE FOR YOUR FACE
Every pair of frames is handcrafted with tremendous attention using time-honored methods of production and hand-finished with signature surface treatments, combining virtues of the past with modern sensibility.

Both european and asian fits are offered to provide maximum comfort for different face shapes.
