Explanation:
Short for zylonite, the trademark name for cellulose acetate; originates from a natural fiber, cotton; one of the most versatile of all plastic frame materials and the most commonly used; frames are milled from blocks of zyl, which come in an enormous variety of colors and patterns; lacquer coatings help prevent yellowing or discoloring from ultraviolet light or skin contact; can be stretched or shrunk for lens insertion with a moderate amount of heat. All frames are carefully handmade, using precision cutting and grinding machinery according to high quality standards. [...]
