Craftsmanship

Traditional German craftsmanship and design

#MadetoLast

The skilful hands and seasoned eyes of the COCO LENI Eyewear artisan create a personal work of art in each pair. A multitude of handcrafting expertise and a desire for excellence create the unique allure in every frame, a distinct and elegant handmade design.

“Since 1946“ means the amalgamation of wisdom and advancement. Traditional craftsmanship combine with modern ideas and new possibility.

At COCO LENI we use traditional riveting for attaching hinges to the frame. The process is a subtle and time consuming. Metal pins are precisely and meticulously hammered through the acetate/horn frame and welded to the hinge. Hinges carry more stress than other parts of the frame therefore riveting is the strongest and most durable method to attach hinges.

The detailed hand-polished finish lends an organic look and the warm touch to the frames. Every prototype is handmade. In order to ensure outstanding quality and the meticulous execution of an idea without loss of details in the process.

#SustainableMaterial

The frame material matters as much as eyewear design.

Eco-conscious eyewear is sensitive to the environmental impact it has, both while making the eyewear and after it is disposed of.
Most of the wood eyewear in the market is made by sticking thin sheets of wood veneer with epoxy or non-biodegradable harmful plastic resins – which technically makes them harder than low-cost plastic eyewear to dispose.

The simpler the manufacturing process, the lower the environmental impact.

“Recycling plastic from oceans to make eyewear sounds great, but does it create more pollution in the process? Are they biodegradable still?”

Eyewear made using sustainable materials which do not require much processing and which easily biodegrade after they are disposed of, are the truly eco-conscious eyewear.

e.g.: Buffalo horn, solid wood, bamboo, acetate or recycled aluminium/copper/silver can be used to make eco-conscious eyewear.

These sustainable and natural materials are skin friendly, hypoallergenic and cosmetically more elegant than the plastic & cheap metal eyewear.
Natural horn is one of the oldest frame materials in the world. It has its own beautiful color and pattern, each piece unique, created as nature intended. Everyone appreciates wearing products made from natural material and fibre, especially when it is worn directly on our skin.
