TAVAT's designer, Norman Schureman, proposed the first ‘SoupCan’ idea while he was working on the first TAVAT Airman collection.
When Norm visited a friend in Arizona, a friend who designs and flies airplanes, he noticed an old poster in the hangar. The poster was an ad about pilots in America that sprayed fields in the ‘30s. These pilots began putting on air shows in the weekend under the name 'The Flying Burritos'.
Norm saw their rugged glasses and imagined that they were cut from soup cans. That gave him an idea right away. After a lot of studying, it resulted in a completely new method of making glasses.
The lenses are held in place as they either fit into the groove of their all-metal version or withing the acetate eye rim within the combination models. The whole construction consits of three pieces of metal, which have been hand-bent, and is held together by high-quality watch crowns.
