After eight years and 436 prototypes, an inventor from Cornwall England has perfected his technique of up-cycling denim waste into luxury sunglasses. In a world full of waste, there’s a lot of it ending up in landfill but the founder of Mosevic (Jack) has found a way to make a difference.
The designer and fan of unusual eyewear came up with the idea to use discarded denim just like the lightweight carbon fibres to create a unique collection of robust, luxurious and well-made frames.
The process starts by infusing old denim scraps with resin and then pressing the layers together until they dry. The new material is then crafted by hand into luxury eyewear with added brass details. The glasses come with polarized Zeiss lenses or prescription lenses can be fitted to complete the gorgeous eyewear.
Jack has a background in sustainable product design which is reflected in the company’s ethos. Everything is made in small batches in Cornwall, England and takes up to two weeks for a small batch to be created.
With this collection, Jack wants to showcase that extraordinary things can be made when thinking creatively and when committing to safeguarding the earth’s resources for future generations.
