In Italy since 1953, from simple form of craftsmanship to expression of art
It was in the early 50s that Sintetica Srl, Estiara’s parent company, began its history in Milan. Thanks to Dr. Guitart Delisau, a Spanish chemist, Sintetica became, in a few years, a leader in the production of acrylic material. The quality that underlies the production process is reaffirmed in the search for the best raw material and in the quality control processes that Antonio Carlos Guitart, his son, passionately carries on today. The attention and the pursuit of perfection to which he tends is also found in the relationships within the company, whether they are collaborators, customers or suppliers.
Antonio Carlos Guitart took over the company in 1995 and embraced his father’s entire project from day one. Motivated by a passion for beauty, he resumed his father’s ambitious goal of creating an innovative material specifically developed for the eyewear sector. This is how Amanite®, the new material specifically designed for the creation of Estiara Milano glasses, was born.
Estiara is a compound name: ES is the acronym of the country where the Guitart family has its origins, Spain. TIARA, the crown, wants to be a good omen representing the crowning of the project already idealized by Dr. Guitart in the 70s, but left unfinished. Milan wants to be a tribute to the city where Antonio Carlos Guitart grew up. It’s here, in this city full of tradition and passion for beautiful things, that the idea of glasses that enhance and make tangible the personality of the wearer is born. A unique and recognizable style that makes each pair of glasses as the ideal completion of the personality, the expression of the sophistication of the person who wears it.
