Designed to enhance a woman’s beauty, Tura frames have always provided new reasons for a woman to include them in her essential accessories wardrobe. This ground breaking fashion philosophy set the fashion eyewear industry in motion in the mid-20th century and solidified Tura’s ongoing reputation as a true fashion innovator.
