Les Monts - Materials | Cotton Plant


Our ethos revolves around creating eyewear that harmoniously fuses world-class materials, sustainability, and unparalleled excellence. Premium cellulose acetate, a transformative polymer known for its hypoallergenic properties, takes center stage among these exceptional materials. Derived from a blend of cotton and wood pulp, this extraordinary material begins as a raw slab, undergoing a mesmerizing metamorphosis over several months. Through meticulous dyeing, pressing, stretching, cutting, and curing, these noble blocks of acetate transform into masterpieces of eyewear craftsmanship. Rooted in our heritage and dedication to craftsmanship, every pair of Les Monts spectacles embodies an intrinsic connection. Our cellulose acetate's origin lies in esteemed family-owned businesses in Japan and Italy, where artistry has been honed through generations, elevating it to the world's most distinguished quality. Just as an artist carefully selects the perfect hues, we venture into historic acetate libraries, handpicking thoughtful and considered colors for our exclusive collection. But the distinction of our eyewear goes beyond captivating colors; each frame is meticulously manufactured from thick cellulose acetate, far exceeding the ordinary market standard. Empowered by this magnificent material, our esteemed artisans skillfully sculpt unique compositions, elevating our eyewear to an exceptionally high standard of quality. A bold collection celebrating individuality, our eyewear embodies the adventurous spirit we wholeheartedly honor. Each pair of spectacles is more than a product; it is a masterful work of art born from our passion for artistic expression, sustainability, and unyielding excellence.


At Les Monts, we delicately compose our metal frames using fine titanium, a precious material that surpasses its counterparts, such as stainless steel. With a feather-light feel on your face and a delightful flexibility to the touch, our titanium frames ensure a comfortable and hypoallergenic experience. Sourced from various regions around the world, this valuable mineral blends unmatched comfort with exceptional durability, making our titanium eyewear an irresistible combination of allure and practicality. Titanium's extraordinary strength-to-weight ratio empowers our artisans to embark on innovative design decisions while preserving the utmost comfort and fit of our frames. With consummate skill, our skilled craftsmen transform raw materials into intricate works of art, employing techniques that few others would dare to attempt. At Les Monts, we prioritize quality over mass production, ensuring that each pair of frames is a true testament to our commitment to craftsmanship. To bestow you with true luxury comfort, we adorn each pair of Les Monts frames with custom-branded titanium nose pads, reflecting our devotion to the smallest of details.
