Persol (from "per il sole" meaning "for the sun") was born in 1917 and its signature Supreme arrow makes it internationally recognizable eyewear icon up to this day. Persol is known for creating truly revolutionary products which are all still made by hand in the historical factory in Lauriano (Turin).
Material used for the frame is high-grade injected acetate. In comparison to plastic, acetate is significantly lighter, more flexible and 100% hypoallergenic. The lenses are engineered to block 100% of harmful UV rays.
