Certified optician for 10 years | Your prescription glasses starting at £99
"When I had the idea to create Jimmy Fairly in 2010. I was 23 years old and I was in my psychology student room. I wanted to invent something that could be beautiful and useful. My father is a trader and my mother works in the voluntary sector. I know today that the two have influenced me in their own way. One day, I needed glasses and when I went to the optician, I naively said to myself: «How can such a simple object cost the price of an iPhone? « While digging, I realized that a multitude of intermediaries came to take their share of the cake. And that eyewear was no longer interested in us, the customers.
Why couldn’t what is accessible be beautiful and of quality? Why couldn’t buying glasses be fun and inspiring? So this is the spark. I realized that we could do better: all I needed was a soul and a desire to change things.
"What if we do something beautiful, of quality and offer it at a fair price ?"
It’s possible if we take care of our glasses from A to Z. From design, to manufacturing to shops. Directly from Us to You.
Later, I discovered that hundreds of millions of people around the world had no access to sight.
“What if for each pair purchased, we gave a pair to someone who cannot afford it?"
I presented my idea during a competition in Toulouse that Jimmy Fairly won, and where I met Sacha.A week later we joined forces and six months later we launched our first collection. Jimmy Fairly was born.
Thank you for taking the time to read me and allowing us to continue our great adventure. Because from the beginning, for Us, it is only You."
