Founded in 2008 in Sydney by visionary designer Jesse Walker, Enki has quickly become one of the world’s leading cult eyewear brands. Inspired by curiosity and wanderlust, Enki reflects a spectrum of colours, cultures, influences and philosophies, all encountered during years of travel around the globe.
The Enki philosophy is to do things differently. From their designs to their campaigns, they step outside the cliche model shoot box and break through the normal paradigm, into the unknown.
All of their designs and campaigns have the Enki touch. You can see it in every detail, whether it’s the beautiful lux matte finishes, the antique metal detailing or the stunning indigenous people that they use as models in their shoots, you can always tell it’s Enki.
"The whole idea behind the Enki eyewear campaigns is to show the ancient cultures, tribes and indigenous people of this planet. We don’t use models, only the local people of the countries that we visit. Their pure expression and beauty is what attracts us. The way they look and the way they live is so inspiring. We love the way tribes live sustainably and in harmony with their environment. We really want people to see these photos and be inspired to express themselves in an organic way and to rediscover their connection with themselves, the Earth and all its living creatures."
Enki is for fringe-dwellers, futureheads and bold souls. It’s not just about making eyewear. It’s about making a statement, and making people think.
