Handmade in Italy.
Where it all began, a hundred years ago.
It all started in Turin. After all this time, Persol roots are still grounded in unmatched craftsmanship.
And even today, every frame is made in Italy. Still by hand. Still scrupulously perfect, complex and precise.
First wonder: the Lenses.
Using the finest primary materials and the most sophisticated manufacturing processes, Barberini® mineral lenses are born.
An exquisite sense for light is revealed, through purest visual quality as well as maximum durability*.
*All the lens characteristics refer to the Persol collection
1. The Starting Point
The first phases of Formulation, Rare Earth Enhancement and Mixing are vital in the production of purest optical glass lenses.
2. The Polarizing Film
A precisely positioned film interposed between two glass wafers creates flawless polarized lenses.
3. The Lens Edging
With highly accurate movements, each lens is flawlessly cut for impeccably frame-fit lenses. This is why every frame has to be perfectly crafted.
Second wonder: the Acetates.
A unique union of nature and tech. Acetate from cotton, powdery pigments: blended to form variations that can only be found in Persol sunglasses.
That's not all: using natural materials allows us to create colour variations that are unique for each frame.
Third wonder: the Arrow.
An unmistakable form emerges from the dark: the Arrow.
Over the years and through all evolutions, this is what makes every Persol unmatchable. It's the unquestioned emblem of the Brand.
