MØY ATELIER is deeply committed to developing sustainable products with the most cutting edge green materials:
Bio-nylon lenses: Since AW21 MØY has incorporated bio-nylon lenses from Essilor, made in Italy. The bio-nylon consists of 39% bio-based content and takes 5 years to biodegrade in a landfill. All our lenses offer 100% protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays, and have AR coating that provides reduced glare and anti-scratch resistance. In addition, our lenses are equipped with a multilayered, anti-glare coating with an oleophobic and hydrophobic treatment reducing reflection and preventing dust from obscuring vision.
Bio-acetate frames: MØY has since inception collaborated with Italian manufacturer, Mazzucchelli, whose cellulose acetate is known for its premium quality, lightweight feel and with the right amount of elasticity. With its long history of know-how of over 160 years and certified standards, it is the obvious choice for MØY to partner with. Since AW19, the brand has experimented with bio-acetate (cellulose acetate made from natural plasticisers) and by AW21 our frames are exclusively made out of bio-acetate.
Hardware and detailing: MØY’s distinctive light and flexible metal frames are all meticulously hand crafted from recycled stainless steel. The material’s thermal adaptability means the frames are adjustable to fit. Some collections have all their metal surfaces plated in either 12karat or 18karat gold for added luxury and refinement.
