As gorgeous as the same-name-grand-boulevard at the heart of Mu¨nchen is our PRINZREGENTEN model. Its precious elegance and stylish airiness is accentuated by the finest nature’s materials (woods, slate, horn). In many working hours and even more work steps we form a HANDMADE EYEWEAR spectacle that is perfectly prepared for everyday’s use but nonetheless impresses by its ease and beauty.
Ebony and Ivory, a pairing which even has its own song – that‘s how valuable the wood from the Diospyros tree, from which ebony is harvested, is. As far back as ancient Egypt the wood, which mainly came from East India or Africa and is very dense (making it more durable), has been treated with reverence.
Although we only use small quantities of ebony obtained from furniture manufacturers unable to use it due to the size, we take care that it is all procured in areas where the trees are not endangered.
