In Caribou we carry collections set apart from massive production, that represent a sophisticated way of life without putting tradition aside. Most of our models are hand made. Framers (Germany), Andy Wolf (Austria), Graz (Australia), Paulino Spectacles (Portugal) o Kilsgaard (Denmark) are some of the brands we work with. In order to find the most special glasses, we are continuosly searching fashion blogs and international magazines, as well as visiting trade shows in Europe, where the most important firms from all over the world meet.
We go for brands that are on the cutting edge of sunglasses design such as Shwood (USA), SUPER (Italy) and Illesteva (USA). We don’t forget great classics like Persol (Italy), Cazal (Germany), Vuarnet (France) o Shuron (USA) -some of them with over 100 years of history. We also support young firms: Raen (USA), L.G.R. (Italy), KBL (USA), Garrett Leight (USA) and Hamburg Eyewear (Germany).

Luxury glasses designed and manufactured in Austria. The collection targets a particular group of people for whom their eyeglasses are precious accessories. Hand-made in Austria means that every frame has to go through a series of manufacturing steps and quality checks which turn every Andy Wolf product into a unique piece of handcraft. These frames not only stand for style and elegance but also make you completely forget that you are wearing glasses.
It is one of the oldest companies in the world. With over 100 years of manufacturing experience and tradition, Anglo American collection is a modern classic. Frames with a distinct British style, hand made with top quality cellulose acetate that brings memories of the almost forgotten art of things well-made.
After a long search in the most important international trade shows, we realized that it was very complicated to find beautiful, fine quality, affordable collections. So we decided to take a step forward and creat our own: CARIBOU.
Manufactured in Italy with top quality acetates, our collection consists of five models in three different finishes, both prescription and sunglasses.
We hope you like the result as much as we do!
