Where did Da Vinci Sunglasses Come From?
Da Vinci Sunglasses' owner enjoys an active lifestyle-including ocean sailing and amateur sports car racing. As an active sportsman he is constantly searching for products that are compatible with the way he lives his life. This included looking for sunglasses that would withstand the rigors of his lifestyle--including strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. He was unable to find what he was looking for so he finally said "To hell with it!" and started his own company. Da Vinci Sunglasses is the result of that effort.
Put simply: Da Vinci's goal is to provide the finest sunglasses in the world.
