Originally an optician, Jacques Durand evolved in eyewear production and distribution and crossed paths with Alain Mikli in 1978, since it’s beginning, when they were only 4 people.
Jacques Durand emphasizes the products’ authenticity: most companies can easily manufacture glasses anywhere in the world, and most of them are keeping the country of manufacture secret. The authenticity of JDO’s glasses lies in the products traceability that is given to the consumer. Each production stage is detailed on our MANUFACTURING card that is joined to each frame. It lists the various manufacturers and craftsmen involved in the making of our products. The name, geographic location, as well as the nature of the services provided is therefore transparent and traceable.
