The history of glasses viewed as an accessory dates back to the mid-14th century.
The first reliable documents on this invention can be traced in Veneto, precisely where De Rigo was founded and where it is still based, which was one of first eyewear manufacturers in the world.
In their long evolutionary process, eyeglasses have been the subject of continuous innovations in materials and production techniques right up to the present times, reaching the highest sophistication standards.
Thanks to its continuous investments in Research & Development and in the most exclusive technologies, De Rigo is an internationally recognized leader in excellence, which is expressed in all its collections of glasses.
However, innovation means not only technology; it means also trying out new materials and special treatments so as to continue to develop products that are always different, yet always in line with the identity of the single brands represented by the De Rigo Group all over the world.
