’Hygge’ is the joy of making a simple everyday thing into a beautiful and meaningful experience. The new collection from monkeyglasses® is inspired by exactly that. The name is ‘Copenhagen Hygge’.

It is complicated to describe, hard to pronounce but easy to recognize. When the Danes ‘hygger’ they unwind from their everyday life. They drink coffee, light candles, play cards or simply take a bike ride together.

Simple things that create small, soft bubbles of peace and companionship in a hectic life.

Care and consideration – for each other and for the world that we are a part of – is the focal point of the new collection ‘Copenhagen Hygge’ from monkeyglasses® that this time is based on the Danes unique and relaxed lifestyle.

Sustainable MonkeyGlasses®

monkeyglasses® are considerate of the environment and the people who manufacture the glasses. Most monkeyglasses® are made from biodegradable raw materials like acetate, which consists of more than 95% cotton flowers and wood pulp.

Zero Waste

Through their Zero Waste programme, monkeyglasses® make use of the materials left over from their production of glasses to craft creative accessories and exclusive jewellery. The characteristic spectacle cases have also been manufactured specially for monkeyglasses® from recycled paper.

Social Responsibility

All monkeyglasses’® suppliers comply with the guidelines in the UN’s Global Compact on corporate social responsibility.

monkeyglasses® also support the Save the Orangutan Forest School in Borneo and collect old glasses— whatever the brand—for poor families in South India.
