In 1995 in a small garage in Orange County, California, the art student Paul Frank was busy sewing his first vinyl wallet as a present for a friend’s birthday. When his friends saw the work, a colourful vinyl wallet with the (now famous) monkey Julius on top of it, they instantly fell in love with it. Paul Frank Industries became the creator of some of the most sought after accessories and lifestyle products of our times. Paul Frank Optometrists, the eyewear line of Paul Frank, consists of sun and eyeglasses made in tradition of Paul Frank Industries in vintage shapes and outstanding colour combinations. All models are made from acetate, a high quality natural plastic and are therefore very resistant to scratches and damage.
