Safilo Group is an Italian eyewear manufacturer founded in 1934 by Guglielmo Tabacchi. The company produces sunglasses and optical frames under numerous licensed brands, such as Fendi, Elie Saab, Fossil, Givenchy and Tommy Hilfiger, representing high-end labels with huge reputations. Spanning couture, fashion and sportswear styles, Safilo Group incorporates years of expertise to produce exceptional glasses relevant to each respective brand.
With a production site dating back to 1878, Safilo Group has a strong heritage of quality manufacturing behind them. With this in mind, research and innovation have been integral to the brand since its beginnings, meaning that high standards are consistently exceeded. New techniques and materials are combined with traditional craftsmanship to ensure that Safilo products remain at the forefront of eyewear. Throughout collections, classic materials such as metal and acetate are still used, though the company is also utilising new, sustainable materials with a forward-thinking initiative. This includes the use of Econyl®, which uses recycled materials to reduce environmental impact. Always looking to the future, Safilo Group produces glasses meticulously and expertly, with some styles involving up to 200 steps to completion.
Glasses by Safilo Group can be purchased through their licensed brands’ own online stores.
