Walter & Herbert

In September 1946, two young entrepreneurs partnered to create Optoplast Manufacturing Company Limited. In the 40 years that followed, Walter Conway and Herbert Thorn enjoyed great success as they developed technology such as the PIMO machine, an innovation that would shape the way spectacles were manufactured worldwide.

Today, James Conway and Daniel Thorn are continuing this legacy. Using seven decades of industry experience, they have created their own collection of frames using materials and techniques that would make Walter and Herbert proud.

The design teams have lovingly developed a beautiful collection of frames. Every frame boasts striking colour combinations of the best globally sourced acetates. Smooth contours reminiscent of shapes from the 1940’s make the frames irresistibly tactile. Each frame has been carefully considered, undergoing a lengthy design and development process. The design team embraces a combination of classic techniques and modern technologies to take their ideas from sketch to finished frame. All their frames are skillfully crafted here in England.
