Materials used by MARKUS T

Titanium is the most lightweight metal in the manufacture of eyewear. And all the Markus T glasses don’t make use of any screws. To achieve this result, special square hinge blocks connect the frame sections.
MARKUS T uses nylon fibers to create these hinge blocks, instead of using screws. And indeed, the best way to recognize MARKUS T glasses is their prominent block hinges. And an additional benefit for you is that these hinges will not require any follow-up tightening.
