FAUVE was born in 2020. The name FAUVE represents the color of the eyes as well as the notion of "label", which reinforces our "creative" positioning.
Founded by Raphaëlle Aracil and Clémence Hérault, two passionate, dynamic young opticians ready to break the codes to meet customer needs.
FAUVE is the culmination of a human and professional project. Offering quality, French, accessible products, designed to last and be passed on (second life offer) was obvious and a common dream.
Experts in optics, all our attention and our professionalism are put at the service of our customers whom we welcome in our shop located at 43 Rue de Poitou, in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris.
With FAUVE, we are inspired by new and old trends and the French art of living to offer you timeless collections.
We use cellulose acetate and biodegradable acetate for our frames. The biodegradability measured in this acetate is greater than 90% according to the ISO 14855 standard.
Acetate, known in optics for its quality, offers us an infinite choice of colors.
Our collections come from French know-how. They are entirely manufactured and controlled in Oyonnax in Ain. OurFAUVE are shaped by passionate experts in one of the best factories in the Jura region.
In order to be as transparent as possible, we would like to point out that some of the raw materials needed to manufacture our frames come from Europe or Asia. To our great regret, the vast majority of materials are no longer manufactured in France.
To complete the quality of our products, we have chosen Carl Zeiss as the main glassmaker, one of the world leaders in the optical market.
The quality of a frame depends on its composition, its hold and its lightness. To obtain it, we worked in collaboration with a renowned designer to offer you exceptional models. All our FAUVE are designed in Paris.
