ZANZAN is a Maltese word for the feeling of wearing something special for the first time. Eyewear lovers, Megan Trimble and Gareth Townshend, founded ZANZAN to share their love of handmade eyewear with a new kind of optical brand.
Designed in London. Handmade in Italy.
All ZANZAN products are designed in our London studio and 100% handmade in the specialist workshops of Valdobbiadene, a small town in the alpine meadows of Northern Italy. Known worldwide for its Prosecco, the region is increasingly recognised for another world class export: handmade Italian eyewear.
We believe in ‘buy better, buy less’ so we build eyewear that lasts beyond seasons and trends, using the labour-intensive manual processes that define handmade Italian eyewear.
Each finished frame is then individually shaped, balanced and hand-polished to make sure the wearer has the feeling of wearing something really special every time they wear their ZANZANs.
