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 further strengthened its expertise with increasingly technical lenses (Zebra, Zebra Light, Octopus, Cameleon, Falcon) to meet every outdoor need. With the creation of its RX Trem program, honoured with a Silmo Gold Award, Julbo revolutionised the world of sunglasses. All wearers of prescription eyewear could now live their sport to the full with the first Julbo 100% prescription sunglasses.
