In an ever expanding digital landscape, it can seem easy to loose touch with the value and beauty of the making process. At MONC, we value the skills of traditional craftspeople; choosing to step away from high volume manufacturing, instead taking the decision to use highly skilled and experienced artisans in the manufacture of each of our products.
With transparent manufacturing methods at our core, we want to show you how every product is made, and why. Focusing on the importance of supporting makers and celebrating their craft.
Each of our frames is handmade in our family run artisanal factory in the Neapolitan countryside. In the eyewear industry, you hear the word ‘handmade’ used regularly without true meaning behind it. Unlike other manufacturers, our makers stick to traditional techniques and processes. This one-on-one process allows them to concentrate on each frame individually, maintaining true precision.
A one-by-one process allows them to concentrate on every individual frame, and make sure that it's built with precision, and finished to perfection.
Our quality control is carried out by eye, checking that every frame is fitted and structurally sound to bring a problem free product for our users.
So, when we say that our frames are 100% Handmade in Italy, we truly mean it. From hand cutting the acetate, to gold foiling each embossed detail, the care and precise quality that's gone into each element is truly authentic.
