Bidborough features an enduring 'panto' lens shape and key hole bridge referencing of European shapes from mid 20th century. Heavier set that our other 'panto' shapes, Bidborough features elegantly tapering temples which subtly increase to the tips.
Bidborough is named after Bidborough Street in King's Cross, built from 1807 and named after a parish in Tonbridge, Kent. On this site stood the Bidborough Riding School, where there still stands the figure of a horse.
Our frames are made in the traditional way, and go through fifty crafted stages of production over a period of six weeks including four separate stages of polishing to ensure a glorious lustre. Most of our frames are constructed with custom Cubitts pins that secure right through the acetate — this is called pin drilling. This process is done by hand and takes more time and skill, but means hinges can be easily maintained.
We offer a wide range of prescription lenses, including single vision lenses, higher indexes for stronger prescription, and progressives. Our sunglass offer full category 7, UV400 protection, including polarised lenses and Zeiss mirrors.
