As an industry leader with innovative products, the Bollé brands have grown from their small workshop beginnings to become a leading global manufacturer of quality eyewear.
Founded in 1888 in Oyonnax, France, the Bollé family originally designed and manufactured combs and hair accessories from horn. In 1936 the company launched the production of sunglasses and optical frames in Celluloid and then Rhodoid. After the Second World War, Bollé became the pioneer of molded nylon, with products that met the highest standards of that time. The first pair of goggles and masks were added to the Bollé range of products in 1950.
Now, over 130 years later, Bollé products are distributed and worn all over the world. Bollé has developed a particular strength in the specialty markets of snow sports, water sports, golf, tennis, cycling and outdoor, as well as eyewear that meets everyday needs and styles.
