Many consider Anne et Valentin to be the pinnacle of French eyewear, and possibly, of eyewear worldwide.
When we decided to open Artisan Eyeworks, it was deeply important to us that we carry lines that were authentic and genuine as glasses for glasses sake, and not simply unrelated licensed brands, stamped on mass produced frames. To that end, we vetted many, many companies, looking for the brands that would pair well with our vision, eschewing the lines available everywhere.
Anne was certainly one of our top choices, but it isn't as easy as that. They are what's called a non-prospecting line. They don't go out looking to open new accounts, but rather wait for people to show interest in them. After that, they vet every potential account including a site visit. We're honored to represent them.
