In 1980, his notoriety in the eyewear sector allowed him to work with the greatest fashion designers.
The current production capacity is 25,000 frames / month.
It all started with the freehand drawing of Christophe Morcamp, which allowed the Computer Aided Design (CAD) to build out the industrial design. The latter, once validated by Christophe, allows us to realize a prototype, entirely by hand.
We work with the best manufacturers of acetate Mazzucchelli and Laes. Cellulose acetate is a hypoallergenic material, derived from cotton.
To strengthen the hinges, we make a notch on the heel of the hinge to be able to mold a frame in nickel silver.
This operation is carried out in the traditional manner: by hand.
The numerical control machine will grind and shape the "face" of the frame.
The angle of the temple makes it possible to adjust them perfectly to the faces. The screwing of the temples on the face is carried out completely by hand.
The arch of the “face” gives the frame its curved shape, indispensable for the assembly of the glasses
Polishing is a crucial step. It allows us to give the patina for the future bezel. The frames are placed in barrels containing beech skewers. The rotation of the frames and temples in contact with the skewers will give them a polished and shiny appearance. This stage takes place in three different cycles, between washing and manually drying, the process happens over the course of one week.
All operations take place
in the production site based in Evreux.
Proximity is the only way to maintain control over quality
