About us story
The worst surf trip ever!
In 2012 Tim took Robbert on the worst surf trip ever. The ocean and beach were full of trash. They dried off and decided to do something about it.
As both men are ever so slightly vain, they started making good looking eyewear, out of biodegradable or recycled materials.
Their mission; to reduce waste by making a product from recycled and biodegradable materials.
A few months later, Dick Moby was born.

Walk the talk
Sustainability is not a product category, a green label or a fancy brochure. It’s a key element of manufacturing and etched into our DNA.

All our materials are sourced by us. To guarantee the quality of our product and factory working conditions, we visit our suppliers on a regular basis and we research the environmental impact of materials used.
