Our story

FORA was born in Lisbon, in 2014 with a strong passion for vintage eyewear and sunglasses design. From the very beginning we focused on building our brand foundations. We stopped and took a look inside ourselves to find the things that have built us and the places we lived in, the people we met and the memories we have.

There’s no other place like home they say. We looked to the buildings and the river reflections on the windows with colored clothes drying out at our beloved sunlight. Autumn or Winter, it doesn’t need to be grey. We took a look at our parents’ sunglasses and photographs collection, and we brought their memory back with classic eyewear design, perfect craftsmanship and timeless aesthetics.

FORA is an independent eyewear committed to creating high quality, handmade eyewear inspired by the people, places and stories of Lisbon.
