Oliver Goldsmith

Founded in 1926, it is the story of a family's mission

   to change the way we see the world through

      eyewear design and innovation.

        Fueled by his passion for finding new ways to revolutionize eyewear industry, Philip Oliver Goldsmith came across a local buttons factory which used a revolutionary raw material : colored plastic.

A few sheets of this radical new material were purchased, Philip returned to his workshop, emerging a few weeks later with the first colored eyeglass frames.
