Alistair Barnes is the Founder and CEO of Ballo. Ballo frames are handmade in Woodstock, Cape Town. At the core of every eyewood frame is a unique combination of recycled paper and off-cut timber, which are laminated together with a bio resin. This gives our frames durability and allows any pair of Ballo to be fit with prescription lenses. We then finish each pair with either off-cut timber; up cycled Denim; ShweShwe or domestic Buffalo horn. Each frame is fitted with either high quality polarised or CR39 UV400 reflective mirror lenses, and spring hinges.
