R.T.CO was founded in 2010 by graphic designer Tobias Bergmann in Berlin.
We come from a DIY skateboard background and this is what defines & inspires the brand today,
however we also felt the need to create a product of supreme quality & design.
All R.T.CO sunglasses are handmade in Austria and Italy, made from 100% cotton acetate.
We work with small manufacturers in these countries, the materials used are carefully picked, often being dead stock
from past decades.
Premium quality CR39 lenses made by Essilor in France are also used in every pair of sunglasses.
The name R.T.CO:
R.T.CO means ROLLO T-shirt COmpany, an abstract combination of "to roll" (on a skateboard) and an ironic view of what it
was all about when we first started out:
making screen-printed T-shirts rather than being a real fashion label.
will still be here as a label for the skateboard market, while R.T.CO is
committed to producing the best sunglasses
possible, yet in an acceptable price range.
For the future we want to keep things interesting for us, and hopefully for you too.
