The Team at Mincher-Lockett & Co Opticians with David Green!

We took the opportunity to ask David all about his collection and where his inspiration comes from. To find out more, read our exclusive interview here:-

So David where did your inspiration come from to create your own eyewear collection?

I am constantly inspired by the beauty of nature – from forests to oceans, to the trees and their foliage; there is no substitute for the shapes and colours that are delivered by natural things. One only has to walk in nature to admire the majesty and intricacies of natural world.

What makes David Green different to anything else out there?

Each pair of handcrafted David Green eyewear frames contains a unique fingerprint created by the inclusion of a real fallen leaf or reed piece of real nature. The authenticity combined with innovation of this product is unrivalled within the eyewear industry.

Who would enjoy David Green eyewear/ who is it for?

My bespoke eyewear is ideal for people who want an update of themselves, and who desire to express a point of view about the environment, and the world in which they live. Protecting the planet and our environment is of vital importance & our eyewear reflects a commitment towards the preservation of the world we inhabit.

Tell us about your passion for the environment and nature and the importance of this in your designs and material you use?

I have a real passion for the environment, which stems from a critical awareness to protect the fragile balance that exists within nature. I use real wild leaves and tree reeds that have fallen and which are then collected and dyed in various colours, using natural vegetable dyes. Each and every leaf and reed is checked by hand before being selected to be placed within a David Green frame. All materials used are natural including natural cotton based acetate. Metal components are certified to contain no harmful substances.

Tell me about yourself; what do you enjoy doing most in all the world?

Walking in a forest with my wife, my two daughters and my beagle.

Where is your favourite place to visit?

The Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

How have you found the U.K, and in particular your visit to us?

The spirit of England and your team is so admirable. When you visit your opticians, one immediately feels the warm hospitality and a relaxed environment in which to make choices that you feel confident in.The result is eyewear that brings out the best version of yourself!

Thank you to David Green who is not only a wonderful person and exceptional eyewear designer, but also read palms, pretty accurately too! It was a real pleasure to meet him.
