Opticaid UK will showcase its ever-increasing range of quality Remaldi reading glasses, as well as its gift lines, on stand A31 at Home & Gift, which will be held from July 17 to July 20 at Harrogate.
The company has more than 80 different reading glasses in addition to sunglasses, overglasses and optical accessories. Among the many new reading styles are oversize styles Bampton Berry, Clapham Blue and Green, and new colours in the popular Leeds style. All reading glasses are available in six strengths and come with a Remaldi branded storage pouch.
Opticaid UK director and buyer Gillian Marchbank said: “There is a continuing trend, particularly at the younger end of the market, for bold oversized frames that make a definite statement. But we appeal to a wide array of retailers, so we have our signature brights as well as mid-size and smaller frames. We think it’s important that our glasses reflect fashion and colour trends, so we have lots of reds, greens, blues and animal prints for the winter months.”
The firm will also showcase its new sustainable reading glasses for the first time. These glasses are made from recycled car headlights and other recycled polycarbonates, and 100% of the frame is recycled and can also be recycled going forward. The range is also supplied in compostable bags rather than conventional recyclable plastic, to further reduce environmental impact.
Opticaid UK’s range is suitable for a number of fashion and gift outlets and can be supplied with display stands, subject to qualifying quantities. The team has also recently updated its branded optical stands, so the frames are now shown off to their full advantage.
