Etnia Barcelona is a high-end luxury brand handmade in Spain, and was created with the idea of being the most creative and colorful brand in the world, creating unique eyewear for those who value lies in the design of its colors.
David Pellicer, founder and CEO, launched the brand in 2001. Up until that point, most eyewear had limited color options of brown or black. David wanted something more. With Etnia Barcelona, he created a brand that thought of all people and forms of expression through color and art; a brand that embodied the idea of being free, human, and respectful towards all ethnicities. It revolutionized the way frames were designed by injecting them with an array of colors. The brand and collection have grown to become synonymous with creativity and high-quality, all while remaining an independent company.
Etnia Barcelona uses 100% natural materials in creating their eyewear, whether acetate, metal, or titanium. The line works with the highest quality materials like Mazzucchelli acetate, which comes from cotton and wood, and ensures maximum comfort. Any metal used is also high-quality with a unique finish, and any titanium used is from Japan offering the most lightweight, durable design.
Etnia Barcelona has positioned itself as a brand strongly linked to art and culture, which sets the line apart from competition. The brand is popularly known in the entertainment industry amongst artists and celebrities. Selena Gomez, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Nick Jonas, Lupita, Brad Pitt, Jessica Alba, and Heidi Klum have all been spotted wearing these beautiful frames. Etnia Barcelona also has a partnership with NFL player Von Miller (Von’s Vision Foundation), where they provide free eyewear to those in need. They have donated thousands of frames to date, changing many lives in helping to give the gift of sight.
