LEGENDS ARE MADE.
Like any story, ours starts ‘once upon a time’.
It all began in Germany...Annaberg-Bucholz to be precise in former East Germany.
A workshop was established, in 1946 making handcrafted frames using durable materials and lenses.
During this period, East German goods weren't considered fashionable, but they lasted longer.
Matthias Haase, an eyewear craftsman and optometrist worked in the same workshop since in 1981.
He was then a young man with the vision to make beautifully hand-crafted eyewear using the finest local materials in a post war country when things looked bleak.
Matthias was determined to bring some sunshine into those dark times and what started then is the soul of COCO LENI.
We employ women to ensure we create financial independence, and a skill that can be taken wherever they may find themselves.
Today we are determined to bring a positive impact to our world. How we do this, is the difference which makes COCO LENI a friend of the world.
Then one day, when Arjun Sagar, was trawling the world of eyewear he met the legend, Matthias, who became his mentor.
The perfect harmony between timeless craftsmanship and modern sophistication, offering environmentally conscious glasses of unparalleled quality that are built to last a lifetime.
With a 10-year guarantee, your COCO LENI eyeglasses are an investment in timeless luxury and sustainable style.
