The Maison Bonnet workshop was founded in 1955 but has been in activity since the 1930s. Spectacle makers from father to son for four generations, Bonnet manufactures custom tortoiseshell glasses.
Taking 12 facial measurements (temporal gap, eyelash length, etc.) makes it possible to design glasses that best suit the customer's morphology. Production of glasses, which varies from 6 hours to 30 hours according to the design and the material, is entirely realised by hand, going through 10 stages of shaping. Then comes the step of polishing by hand and buffer. Finally, adjustments, modifications and adjustments obtain quality of vision and total comfort.

Its clientele is largely composed of individuals, some very well known, and institutions.
