It was 1962 when Giordano Frescura, his wife Adolfa, and their brother Carlo decided to open an eyewear store in the town where they were born. It was a small family-run store on the ground floor of their home. They call it Farben.

About the materials

Every model has a story to tell, sometimes more than one. It tells of the craftsman who created it, who chose its shape and materials. Each pair of their glasses is handcrafted through more than forty processes. A unique piece, made with passion by skilled and experienced hands. One by one. Today, as 60 years ago, their production process takes more than 10 weeks.

Sharing a moment

They call it Farben, "to do well" in Venetian dialect, a way to remember how to work, a guarantee for their creations. Many things have changed since that day: shapes, colors, materials and fashions. What has never changed is the approach, the care and the passion with which Farben devotes itself to each and every pair of handcrafted glasses, made strictly by hand.
