LOTHO is a small eyewear maker in Paris, specializing in both sunglasses and eyeglasses - all made by hand in Japan. While the addition of make in Japan may not be important to some, the acetates are. LOTHO utilized the very best acetates in Japan for their frames. The results are very well made frames that should take a knock or two. Being a black frame fan, I am of course heading directly to the Marcello eyeglasses as a favorite, but those looking for further shades and shapes will find LOTHO to offer seven varieties for all.
