Julbo creation of the brand 1988 in Morez in the valley of the French eyewear industry, a Jura native launched a brand which would not yet be called Julbo, but almost… thanks to the name of its founder, Jules Baud. He started his business designing optical eyewear with one idea in mind: innovation. in the early 20th century, at the request of Chamonix crystal hunters wanting to protect their eyes in the mountains, he designed the first «Cristalliers» sunglasses, marking the start of Julbo’s optical sun protection story.
Julbo has integrated Research and Development to manage the technical aspects (computer-aided design, mechanical workshop for the creation of its own tools, moulds and components). Drawing on its experience and expertise, Julbo selects the best materials and applies specific coatings : anti-reflective, ant-fogging, water repellent finishes etc. to create exclusive, highperformance lenses. All Julbo eyewear meets European, American and Australian standards, guaranteeing visual reliability and safety. Now Julbo is a reference brand in the sports sunglasses sector and an acknowledged leader in children's sunglasses, Julbo is extending its development to cover sunglasses aimed at the general public, and winter sports goggles and helmets.
