Etnia Barcelona Partners – Chichester

At North Opticians we love Etnia Barcelona eyewear for many reasons. (You’ll need to read on to discover why). So it gives us great pleasure to announce that our Chichester-based practice is now an official partner for the brand. This is great news for us and even better news for you.

Reasons to ❤️ Etnia Barcelona

Barcelona is a place that most people who visit will fall in love with. A vibrant mix of ancient and modern, immersed in the arts and culture the city is also a thriving tech talent hub. Just like the city it calls home, Etnia eyewear is a fusion of fun and freedom. The city’s vivid lifestyle is reflected in every pair of frames. Here are three reasons why we love this lifestyle eyewear brand.

1: Tradition meets Innovation:

The Sagrada Familia is one of Barcelona’s most famous landmarks. Construction began in 1882 and is still ongoing. It’s a perfect example of tradition meeting innovation. The Art Nouveau architecture and extraordinary engineering are ingeniously modern. Yet, step inside the interior of the basilica, and you immediately feel the sanctuary and solemnity of the church.

Similarly, our favourite Barcelona-based eyewear brand combines artisan craftsmanship with innovative materials to create frames that stand the test of time.

2: Sustainability:

Barcelona is a bustling city. But spend some time there, and you’ll note the small details that show commitment to sustainability. These range from the city’s municipal fleet of electric vehicles to the ‘vegitecture’ vertical garden programme.

Likewise, Etnia Barcelona is committed to sustainability. They use natural materials like cotton and wood to make frames that are comfortable and hard-wearing.

While your Etnia Barcelona frames will undoubtedly improve your quality of life the brand also promises to help many others through their charitable Foundation.

3: Be like Brad & Beyonce:

Barcelona is home to one of the most famous football teams in the world. So famous players, like Lionel Messi and David Villa, have embraced the city as home.

Similarly, Etnia eyewear has been known to grace the faces of famous celebrities. You’re in great company when you wear your Etnia spectacles… Find out who wears them HERE.

As an official Etnia partner, we are now able to offer our clients more access to frames. We have a wide range available to try at our Chichester opticians practice. We will also be updating these on a regular basis so you’ll be able to try the latest seasonal collections.

We’ve told you why we love the brand but don’t take our word for it… We caught up with one of our regular clients, Kate Coote, to discover why she has turned into an Etnia eyewear collector.

Q: When did you buy your first pair of Etnia Frames?

A: I was visiting Barcelona in 2017 and discovered their flagship store, it’s amazing by the way. I bought my first pair there. But then discovered the brand at North Opticians in Chichester and bought a second pair a few months later. Since then my collection has grown to eight pairs.

Q: Why do you love the brand so much?

A: I love the diversity of the frames. It means that I can always pick a pair to match my outfit or my mood. I have colourful frames that are fun and quirky and huge round sunglasses that make me feel like a Hollywood star. My latest pair (Chrysler) are elegant and refined, they are business-like and beautifully geometric.

Q: How do you find the comfort level and fit of your Etnia eyewear?

A: They are all fairly lightweight and fit beautifully, but I think the fit comes down to the excellent customer service at North. Helen and Ellie have always taken the time to ensure that they adjust my frames on collection.
