Our Story

At Privado Eyewear™, we wholeheartedly believe in the saying that the eyes are the window to the soul. You see the world through them, and the world sees you. So why not leave a bit to the imagination? That is what we strive to achieve at Privado.

Privado was founded in April 2020 with a simple mission: Offering high-quality, well-made sunglasses that help you effortlessly elevate your look, protect your eyes, and maintain the mystery within you. Privado translates to private, and the owl in our logo represents wisdom as a tribute to our founder Laura who served as a police detective for seven years before pursuing her passion for eyewear.

Our Designs

We offer the same luxury designs and masterful craftsmanship that you’d expect from high-end brands, but at more affordable prices. Because at Privado, we believe everyone deserves to experience luxury. Our designs are created with the goal of offering you eyewear that will help you express who you are inside without having to leave the window to your soul exposed. You can reveal your personality by experimenting with your appearance using our eyewear.

Our collections are named after different species of owls that are known for their mysterious aura and wisdom. We draw inspiration for our designs from iconic styles of the 1900s but then add our personal touch to make them unique. Each of our blue light glasses and sunglasses are carefully handcrafted using hypoallergenic acetate, metal, or polycarbonate, along with Nylon Polarized/Non-Polarized Nylon or 1.1 TAC lenses. All of our sunglasses designs provide 100% UVA/UVB protection (UV400) and are scratch-resistant and prescription ready.
