The Nelson continues to be a Monokel bestseller, year after year.
The making of our Havana acetate is truly an artisanal process. First, we make small coloured pellets of various hues of yellow, brown and orange by mixing organic colour powder with raw biodegradable cellulose acetate. The result is a highly durable, hypoallergenic material, made from renewable resources. The coloured acetate pellets are then mixed and stirred by hand to achieve our speckled Havana pattern, thus making the pattern on every frame unique – no two pairs alike.
