The Nor'Wester is our homage to great men such as such as John Lennon, Mahtma Ghandi and Le Corbusier. These associations define the Nor'Wester's relevance in modern times. The Nor'Wester is a timeless frame that blends the lines between simplicity, archetypal design and sophisticated fashion.
Characters of classic style tend to wear glasses of distinction and no eyeglass design says classic like the Nor'Wester. 



A quality selection of the best, sustainably sourced timbers is used in the creation of our frames. Natural wood grains, our own hand dyed timbers and black carbon combinations offer great versatility in the look of your frame.

Our unique, fibre reinforced, timber composite material offers an ability to produce exceptionally thin-rimmed designs (at 1.5mm), unlike anything previously seen in a wooden frame.

Fritz's impeccably refined finishing techniques involve the application of a hardened, protective clear coat and the meticulous process of hand sanding. The result is an ultra smooth frame offering unsurpassed comfort and an ability to withstand the harshest of elements, including water, sunscreen and the like, for everyday wear.

In addition, our custom designed spring hinge allows for easy adjustment to provide the best possible fit.

Inspired by traditional boat building techniques and the natural beauty of wood, Fritz Frames are comfortable, beautiful, functional, and a revolution in timber eyewear.



All Fritz Frames are handmade in Australia in small numbers. This production style makes it possible for us to custom size a frame for your particular needs (POA).
