meet the maker
Launched in London in 2016 by Freddie Elborne, MONC represents a new era in which quality, provenance and ethical production are of the same importance as the aesthetics of the finished item.
Each frame is sourced and made in Italy, by a small team of experienced craftspeople. MONC designs products for people who believe in true craftsmanship.
Frames from their conscious collection are made from bio-acetate, the bio-based, bio-degradable, preferable offspring of acetate.
In addition MONC makes all their cloths from Cupro, which was created to reduce waste in the cotton industry. Cupro is made from cotton linter, which is a soft fibre that covers cotton seeds, which otherwise goes to waste.
