Pewpols was founded in 2019 by Irish born Niall David O'Sullivan. We are a luxury optical and sunglasses brand based on the south east coast of Ireland.
"I love eyewear and I am inspired by every aspect of this industry. A great frame can completely transform a person’s look and personality. Owning a quality pair of glasses is like owning a fine piece of jewellery or a vintage time-piece. We offer an added level of detail that makes our products instantly collectible.”
We started our journey in 2014 traveling around Europe sourcing the very best materials to produce our collection. It was our desire to manufacture in Europe that brought us to France, where we now handcraft our entire collection.
“In late 2017 I met a French man in Northern Italy who owned a small factory in Oyonnax France. I instantly liked him and found him incredibly receptive of our initial drawings. He understood the level of detail required to produce our first collection."
"In early 2018 I traveled to Oyonnax in France to meet him at his small factory. He employs just 11 people in his family run business. It was a very informative experience seeing how these artisans hand-craft each frame. I was immediately drawn to working with these people on my collection.”
Pewpols launched in February 2019 during Milan fashion week.
