From greek νόστος, “return”, usually home, usually through the sea. First book of Homer’s Odyssey, describes the trials of the hero who becomes such resisting the offer of a better placement in the world than that of  his home. return to where you belong, similarly to the internal return/journey and penance of the jewish teshuvà,returnto God. The journey is often fraught with obstacles, danger, frustration, sometimes failure. Nostos is a vocation, an inner call to stand up again and keep moving. Despite the fall, despite the failure, towards the place we belong to. The pilgrimage into one’s heart. “And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time”

Each pair of PEPLOR's Genuine Horn Eyewear comes with not just one, but two beautifully crafted cases. A hard leather case that provides protection during travels, a true masterpiece of craftsmanship. As part of the overall process of the case finalisation the vegetal tanned leather requires a 25 days mould setting around a wooden last, intricately crafted by our skilled wood carver. The result is a perfectly contoured case that is completely seamless, with no need for any stitches. Each case is a unique work of art, as the natural variations in the leather and the hand-crafted process ensure that no two cases are exactly the same. The second is a soft leather case that easily fits into your pocket. Both cases are handmade in Florence, Italy, using only the highest quality cowhide leather to ensure that your eyewear is protected in style.
