INTELLIGENT, PURPOSEFUL DESIGN IS THE STARTING POINT FOR SUSTAINABILITY AT MYKITA. TRANSPARENCY ABOUT WHERE AND HOW OUR FRAMES ARE MADE DEFINES OUR PRODUCT AND COMPANY CULTURE.
Intelligently combining innovation, quality, and aesthetics to create eyewear that will last well beyond average standards is our understanding of responsible design. We also encourage responsible consumption which to us means choosing with care in order to own, wear, and enjoy products for a long time. We strive for timeless eyewear made to the highest quality standard and we work continuously to prolong the lifespan of our frames through the dedicated maintenance and product aftercare available at MYKITA Shops worldwide – our complimentary MYCARE service.
Our independent owned-and-operated production facility with a fully integrated supply network is a genuine rarity in the eyewear business. Frames are handcrafted at the MYKITA HAUS in Berlin with some processes taking place at our other manufacturing facilities within the E.U. Our signature stainless steel eyewear is made of Swedish spring steel consisting of 88 percent recycled content. In 2022, we became the first in the eyewear industry to completely switch our acetate supply to the sustainable material, Acetate Renew. This is an ISCC certified process.

Following a responsibility strategy encompassing environmental and social aspects, we aim to continually reduce the footprint of our products and entire operation to set the bar for responsible design and realise our full human potential. Aware that as a consumer brand our environmental impact may never be fully neutral, we still want to amplify the conversation on this vital topic and actively take responsibility for our natural and social surroundings.
