Our Story

“We started Bloobloom because we didn’t want to choose between looking after ourselves and looking out for others.

We wanted to see eyewear afresh – to do it better – and create a brand we would buy. Because we value honesty, we relish buying from similar souls, from people who want to stand for something. Like the small-scale craftsman who handmakes pieces with care in his workshop, or the independent grower who lovingly harvests his own patch of land. Why not be the same with glasses?

The best way to be that brand is to get naked. To pop the lid and show you everything – right down to the true cost of every product we make. By seeking your say in what we do, we invite you to walk the road alongside us, keeping us on track.

That’s exactly why we came up with our Pair for a Pair programme. To have a positive impact on people who genuinely need it. But it’s easy to make a promise and break it. So always being open about our aims, from the start, is how we commit to doing things the right way. With your support – and of course, wearing truly fabulous glasses.”

welcome to la vie en bloo

Blue is not a colour. Or so thought artist Yves Klein, who saw it as ‘…beyond dimensions, whereas the other colours are not’. For him, it was the colour of ideas, glowing out of the vivid ultramarine he created, conjuring up images of limitless sea and sky. Back on earth, we agree. His colour inspires our raison d’être, which is to help people’s eyes see better, clearer, further.

On the Bloobloom voyage our imagination was sparked by the 8-point star, a universal spiritual symbol, a blooming lotus flower beckoning Buddhists towards enlightenment. And we spell our name this way to please the eye. We’re all about the eyes.

It's All In The Detail

At Bloobloom, we do things our way. We create our own unique designs, travel the world in search of the finest materials and spend months selecting the right factories. Stamps on our passports, maps on our phones and a whole lot of handshakes. To find colours and shapes that inspire us. Along the way, we share our fresh discoveries of all things vision(ary) to make sure you always wear the crème de la crème.

“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”

Behind The Glasses

Behind The Glasses

We’ve all heard it: it ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it. True. We go out of our way (by thousands of miles) to hand-pick our factories. To find the ones with the same ethical standards as we have. The ones who care about their employees’ lives, about the environment and about making top-quality products.

Behind The Price

Behind The Price

If you’ve ever wondered how much glasses cost to make, it’s time you knew. That’s why we reveal the real costs behind our prices on each product page, along with our mark-ups versus other designer brands. Nothing to hide means nothing to fear.

Behind The Scenes

Bloobloom reflects the way of thinking of its people. Chez Bloobloom you find a culture of openness where thoughtful disagreement is encouraged. If we discover mistakes or weaknesses, we pursue them down the rabbit hole to find our way to change and improvement. Revolutions come from open thinking. Vive la revolution!

LOOK BENEATH THE SURFACE

LOOK BENEATH THE SURFACE

Wearing cool glasses is an everyday treat for lots of us. But our fashionable luxury = another’s basic necessity.

2,500,000,000 people on our planet have no access to glasses.

Surely everyone can afford a pair of glasses? Unfortunately, non. Vision correction has been around for hundreds of years but so many people across the globe still don’t have access to eye care. And for them, glasses can open the door to learning, working and living a considerably better life. This is the largest unaddressed disability in the world. And that makes us fierce. Do you want to help?

Simply giving, without building a sustainable model, can sometimes create problems as well as solving them. At Bloobloom we make a point of helping in the right way.
