We chose Bôhten eye Wear as part of our 5 Brands series for one particular reason; they are brand with a real story, an honest one carefully nursed with their passion for business and an undeniable desire to infect their surroundings with their contagious attention to quality and delivery.
It is on the mountainous region of Kwahu, highest habitable place in Ghana that Bôhten began its journey. Nana Boateng Osei, Founder of Bôhten amongst various ideas, had the initiative to use reclaimed material to manufacture an eco-luxury eyewear line. He draws inspiration from his Ghanaian roots, from his love of nature but mostly from his late grandfather Andrew Hanson Osei, who was Ghana’s first land surveyor in the 60’s.
Bôhten’s manufacturing process starts with reclaimed wood & acetate harvested in the heart of West Africa. The lightweight eyeglasses are designed in Canada and handcrafted in a zero-waste facility.This is the first step of our production plan to move our all research,development and manufacturing expertise to Canada and eventually Africa.The frames are protected by a water resistant protective varnish.Our design and production team is working towards pushing the boundaries to introduce timeless designs.
