Coco Leni // Bold and Brave explorers

Imke is wearing a unique round frame by Coco Leni, with a wide nose bridge bearing resemblance to the steampunk genre. These cool frames speak bold, they speak brave. They speak of a world with an experimental soul. They don’t care for the standard norm, they dare to explore and create their own style.

About Coco Leni

Established in 1946 as an optical store and workshop, they have been producing frames using the finest available materials ever since. Back then, East German goods weren’t considered flashy, but they were indestructible, which made them sustainable and eco-friendly. Nowadays, eyewear designer “Matthias Haase” has revived the frames from that era. This time from the finest natural materials with a minimalistic touch of  German style.

At Coco Leni, they believe that far too many companies neglect ​where ​and ​how their products are sourced. This can have a negative impact on the environment in addition to customer experience. They also think, that not enough companies are putting customer experience and social issues at the forefront of their organization’s agenda. This is precisely why they chose to be different. By creating eyewear using the finest sustainable natural materials. This includes wood, rich cellulose acetate, horn and titanium, and other environment-friendly materials.
