Due to our commitment to develop products of superior quality, we source our materials carefully worldwide from leading suppliers in their respective fields. Our signature strength and lightness are obtained by combining all the elements below.
Lenses: MOY’s signature nylon lenses, in a wide array of colours, are sourced from renowned french lens supplier, Essilor. With its advanced lens technology, it not only protects 100% from harmful UVA and UVB rays, but also gives the optimal visual comfort by enhancing colour perception and reducing glare. In addition MOY’s lenses have added coatings with the latest cutting edge technology such as anti-reflective coating, anti-scratch coating and hard coating with Oleo filter for optimal vision and durability.
Acetate: MØY has since inception collaborated with Italian premium cellulose acetate supplier, Mazzucchelli, whose acetate is known for their vibrant color, layers of depth and lustre, superior tensile strength, and lightweight feel. With its long history of traditions, experience and know-how of over 160 years, it is the obvious choice for MØY to partner with.
In addition we source our acetate from smaller Japanese premium acetate suppliers that specialise in bringing eco-friendly acetate to the market and other cutting edge technological innovations. We chose to use biodegradable cellulose acetate with less harmful phthalates (0.007% per unit ) than normal acetate (average 23% per unit) where we can, as part of our commitment to sustainability. We have also emitted all plastic protection on all our products and packaging.
Metal: MØY’s distinctive light and flexible metal frames are all meticulously hand crafted from stainless steel sheets. 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.
