The beginning

The inspiring story of two young entrepreneurs with 2000 euros in their pockets who revolutionized the optical market with polette. 

From an immense skyscraper in Shanghai to a canal house in Amsterdam, the team members have experienced it all and the adventure continues. From 2 to more than 100 employees worldwide, from a webshop to the opening of 5 connected showrooms, polette has not said its last word. Today, this unlimited force is making headlines on TV, newspapers and influencers.
