Maison Mata is an eyewear shop in Bali specializing in handcrafted sunglasses and eyewear.

Maison Mata was founded by David Beal, an optician with a family history in the field, and operates under the concept of combining French style with Bali’s cultural heritage.

David, along with partners Hyacinthe Hamon and Adi, started the brand focusing on aesthetic design and durability. The brand focuses on crafting eyewear that combines both aesthetic and functional elements.

The brand approached Endabel some time ago to carry our glasses chains in their shops and have been not only best sellers, but selling out each time we re-stocked with each of Maison Mata locations.

Customer reviews of Maison Mata vary, with some noting the prompt service and range of eyewear options. The store is known for offering services like frame adjustments and eye exams. Reviews also mention experiences of receiving services free of charge and interactions with the staff.

The brand’s philosophy is described as creating “high-quality eyewear, made with love not plastic,” indicating a focus on quality and potentially environmentally conscious practices. They claim to offer “uniquely handcrafted sunglasses,” emphasizing the uniqueness of their products.

“Designed and produced in Canggu, Indonesia

Made with love in our workshop by our experts”

Their “handmade” sunglasses are unquestionably unique and are created in Bali at their workshop, but that makes up for a very small selection of their products. They claim each pair of handmade sunglasses takes about 15 days to complete.

The majority of their sunglasses are from a yet to be determined source. It’s possible it’s manufactured directly by Maison Mata or from an unknown source outside of Indonesia.

Regardless, the brand stands out for its use of Italian acetate made with organic materials, such as cotton and wood, staying away from plastic. This choice not only ensures quality but also aligns with eco-friendly practices​.

Currently, Maison Mata has expanded to 3 locations in Indonesia and is in the process of opening another in Sanur.
