Frame Details

The Menrad company was first started in 1896 by a goldsmith named Ferdinand Menrad. The company was called “Württembergische Optische Industrie-Anstalt Ferdinand Menrad” in Schwäbisch Gmünd!! In 70’s the company moved to its present factory at the same time as they introduced a very successful range of frames based on the “John Lennon” look. The 80’s saw Menrad obtain the licence to manufacture the “Joop!”, “Jaguar” and “Davidoff” ranges. Their current distribution network stretches across all of Europe, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Brazil.
