Craftsmanship and know-how are the heart of our approach to creation and production in the service of the product.


Jurassic know-how


The first French glasses were born in the Jura in Morez. Since 1796, aunique French eyewear know-how formed in the region.

In addition, a heritage of horn factories intended for the manufacture of combs and pipes, the workshops of the region have unequaled knowledge of working with acetate.

This association of know-how convinced us to base our workshop in Oyonnax for an entirely French production.  



82 steps. The manufacture of a pair of glasses requires multiple steps, all carried out in Oyonnax.

Each step is artisanal and has been specially thought out during the design of the frame to achieve a precise result.

Barrel polishing, hand setting of rivets... are all elements that guarantee the quality of our frames.

High-end bio-materials


To make our frames we only use the reference M49 from Mazzuccheli,
the only high-end bioacetate on the market.


Created in 1849, Mazzucchelli is one of the last houses to manufacture its acetate in Italy. The know-how of its craftsmen makes Mazzucchelli acetate the reference in terms of quality, shine, solidity and lightness.
