The Nelson continues to be a Monokel bestseller, year after year. Maybe it’s the soft rectangular lenses. Or maybe it’s the powerful versatility. Designed to complement a wide range of face shapes, the easy-to-wear style is handcrafted with unwavering dedication to premium craftsmanship.
Black. The essence of timelessness. We make our Black colourway by mixing black ink with raw biodegradable cellulose acetate. Cellulose is the most common organic compound on planet earth. We use cotton and wood pulp due to their inherently high percentages of cellulose, and their small carbon footprint as compared to similar synthetic fibres. The result is a highly durable, hypoallergenic material, made from renewable resources.
Orange, pink and red lenses enhance contrast and visual depth, especially against green landscapes and blue skies. All our lenses feature anti-scratch and anti-reflective treatment with 100% UVA/UVB protection. Made by renowned German lens- and optics manufacturer Carl Zeiss.
