In the 1980's eyewear companies started experimenting with using snakeskin on their eyewear. A process that was perfected in Canada, became a lost art. Vintage Frames Company is proud to revive a vintage technique of applying snakeskin to our frames. The VF Cobain uses 100% genuine snakeskin to wrap the frame. Each individual frame is different taking the natural properties of the skin. A very rare addition to your vintage sunglasses collection!
