Bollé - An Innovator in Safety Eyewear Technologies

The Bollé Company began in the small town of Oyonnax, France in 1888 when Seraphim Bollé first started manufacturing combs and hair ornaments from the boxwood and horns indigenous to the region.

After WWII, Bollé diversified and began producing nylon to the highest standards in the world. It was not until 1950 that Bollé first introduced safety glasses and goggles to the market; products that they are still famed for today.

In 1956 Georges Bollé created the famous nylon 'cat-eye' sunglasses and in 1960 ski goggles were first introduced. Leading the industry in product innovations, the Bollé family took the business from a small cottage industry to one of the world's leading manufacturers of premium eyewear.

Now, over 100 years later, Bollé products are distributed and worn all over the world. Bollé has developed particular strength in the sports specialty market and continue to manufacture a wide range of safety eyewear for all and every application.
