Launched in London in 2016 by Freddie Elborne, MONC represents a new era in which quality, provenance and ethical production methods are of the same importance as the aesthetics of the finished item. With a background in product, interior, and spatial design, Freddie brings experience in designing for use and material experimentation to MONC, combining these skills to create an edited selection of unisex eyewear, each created within the same meticulous design process. 

 

MONC believe in responsible product design. They challenge the norm by championing craftsmanship through responsible sourcing and ethical production methods. MONC continues to produce all of its frames in one of the last family run workshops in Italy using only the most experienced artisanal craftspeople.

Every purchase of frames also comes with a slip-case which is handmade in England using ethically-sourced and naturally tanned leather. The slipcases are the ideal complementary addition to every MONC frame. Over time the case’s colour and tan to represent the user's journey.
