A brand steeped in heritage, Marius Morel began designing frames in 1880. His collection reintroduces the elegance of the very first designs: authentic products subtly updated and reinterpreted using the latest technologies. First and foremost, Morel’s story is one about family, that takes us back to four generations in optics, and designing frames. A true passion and know-how gave birth to frames that became great eyewear classics. Morel always stood out by its avant-garde and singular spirit. In the 1950s, exports accelerated. Morel positioned itself in new, highly demanding markets, like the United States. In 1958, the company received an “export Oscar” from the Ministry of Finance for all its commercial activities. For Morel, exporting is a long story: since 1880, Jules Morel had been traveling miles by train, heading for Switzerland or Belgium, to deliver his frames, not hesitating to ride his bike 40 km in the snow to reach the closest station! Today, the company sells its frames in more than 94 countries around the world. Morel imposes its strong and atypical vision of the market thanks to its independence.
