The BollÃ© story began in the small town of Oyonnax, France in 1888. There Seraphim BollÃ© started his company by first manufacturing combs and hair ornaments for the boxwood and horn indigenous to the region. After WWII, BollÃ© led the way in molding nylon to the highest standards in the world. Safety glasses and goggles were added to the BollÃ© line in 1950 and in 1956 Georges BollÃ© created the famous nylon 'cat-eye' sunglass. And in 1960, ski goggles were first marketed by BollÃ©. Leading the industry in product innovations, the BollÃ© family took the business from a small cottage industry to one of the world's most prominent manufacturers of premium eyewear.
Now, over 100 years later, BollÃ© products are distributed and worn all over the world. BollÃ© has developed particular strength in the sports specialty markets of snow sports, golf, tennis, and marine, as well as eyewear that meets everyday needs and styles.
