The acetate used is easy to trace through the supply chain as the suppliers are few and well established. Components come mostly from Japan or Germany, with up to seven different suppliers contributing parts for each pair.
ELK glasses are made collaboratively with an independent operator Hint, who is a small, Hong Kong designer trading under the name DH Solutions. Making eyewear is reliant on many different and highly specialised components and suppliers. As such, Hint facilitates these processes for ELK. ELK have visited the suppliers at each stage of the process, despite its length and complexities.
The glasses are assembled in a new factory in China that meets REACH standards. The owner has set up his factory according to ISO standards, and they are working to gain full accreditation.
