Morwen, a company specialising in the production of spectacle frames, was founded in the province of La Spezia, in the north-west of Italy, in the early 1960s.
At that time, glasses were entirely handmade. This fact led to the development of specialised workers: the working processes required excellent manual skills, studies and technological research to use and combine materials such as metals and plastics.
The company became internationally famous in the 70s thanks to a line called You&You. They are models made of acetate with a metal body that supports the entire frame and are inspired by the famous Lozza Zilo glasses, with large, teardrop-shaped lenses.
Morwen closed down in 1986 due to administrative problems.
