K-EYES® is a French family company near Saint-Tropez which designs colorful reading glasses and sunglasses. #OnlyForCoolPeople
Initially, Nasser and Sylvie Kharboutli, entrepreneurs and adventurers, discovered the first colourful and original reading glasses during their holidays in Los Angeles (USA) by the end of the 90s.
They found the idea of making reading glasses a fashion accessory that they decided to import the concept to France.
The couple then had the idea and the desire to offer their own models. It is during a trip that they met by chance the person who will make their future eyeglasses. Shortly after, they launch a first collection of readers with few half-moon shape items with polka dots and animal prints. This is the beginning of a great adventure !
In 2004, K-EYES is officially born.
With little money, the couple from the South of France set up their headquarters at their home from where they managed collections, logistics, shipping, orders, sales from their garage...
First distributed to professionals, the brand quickly grown up in pharmacies and opticians in Paris, seduced by all these colorful eyeglasses. The eyewear was very popular and quickly became a success. At the time, there was little competition and ecommerce was still non-existent.
In 2015, the company launches a redesign of its website, by early 2016 it becomes merchant and is now open to online retail.
Over time, the team has grown and the couple are still running the company. Their children have joined the family company as well. From now on, glasses are designed by the couple and their daughter, Maria, since she joined the company in 2015. Together, they create models with increasingly daring and unusual shapes, worthy of designer frames. The only difference ? Price.
Today, new talents have joined the K-EYES® family.

Our common goal : to make quality eyewear accessible to all at low prices.
From the design of the frame in our workshop in the South of France, through production to sales, all steps of the manufacturing process are mastered solely by our teams.
Our Design team creates each model according to its own inspirations. Instead of following the trends imposed by the dictates of fashion, we prefer to adapt our designs with the tastes of our customers. Thus, we choose to offer a wide selection of models to meet everyone's expectations.
K-EYES has always aimed to democratize reading glasses as a fashion accessory.
We also and above all pay attention to the quality of our products. By selecting first-class materials for our frames and lenses, we guarantee our customers optimal comfort and robustness at a fair price.
While our competitors multiply their margins, we limit our own. This allows us to achieve the best price while still offering the best quality.
The secret ? A family know-how based on love of detail, the demand for quality and the desire to make a great change in the world of eyewear.
We also stand for "Women Empowerment". On the one hand, because we have chosen to bring together mainly female talents, sources of inspiration, courage and empathy. Moreover, at the head of K-EYES, Sylvie Kharboutli, girl boss, mother and true wildcard, managing her family and her team with love. Even men of the team uphold this same value. We all work with the same kindliness and good mood.
