The brand’s imagery and collaborations are an additional medium of expression for the duo, from their imagination and creative desire.
Our creative development is visualized in our Parisian workshop. We repeat the process of product development and prototype evaluation until it reaches our required standard of quality with perfect proportions.Every single PETER AND MAY frame must be approved in our Parisian workshop.
Our atelier in Paris handles design, conception, prototyping, and shipping all in one place. Thus, we can always keep an eye on each step of the process to deliver a flawless product. Our Parisian team checks the quality, refines the polish, adjusts the frames, and hand-checks every part of the product before handing it to you.
Our years of experience, and the wisdom conveyed by our elders have confirmed our formula. We continuously nourish our know-how to make a product we can be proud of.
In 2021 we introduced eco-acetate to our collections; an eco-friendly, plant-based thermoplastic material. We began using this eco-friendly form of acetate as soon as stocks from our suppliers allowed us to.
Our protective lenses are fitted with an internal anti-reflective coating for optimal protection, and our sun lens tints are custom-made in our partners' workshops.
We no longer rely on single-use boxes. We now ship our products in a reusable bag made in Italy from BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) of certified herringbone cotton, a program for eco-friendly cotton.
Our new case is made of ISO certified recycled materials
This manufacturing process meets strict requirements for chemical restrictions as well as social and environmental considerations.
The single plastic pouches protecting our products have been replaced with pouches made from TDPA, a family of oxo-biodegradable plastics that disintegrate much faster than common plastic.
PETER AND MAY eyewear is designed with the utmost care, and we apply the same high standards of quality to every aspect of our work.
The sense of community and passion that everyone puts into their work makes PETER AND MAY a kind of a family-run business. Our team follows the internal quality procedures and carefully inspects each part of the product in our Paris-based workshop before handing it to you/
