Johann von Goisern translates as Johann from Goisern, a beautiful Austrian resort and market town approximately the size of Filey, situated in a UNESCO world heritage area of outstanding natural beauty at the eastern end of the alps, with mountains and crystal clear lakes to enjoy.
It’s the nature and animal life of the region that inspired Johann von Goisern frames. Every shape and colour combination is carefully selected so that the colours, models and collections are harmonious but at the same time unique. Form follows function here. Where others might start with something else, Johann Von Goisern starts with the frame shape and what that says about you and your character. Are you classic, quiet, playful, serious, or modern?
The company then combines striking colours in cotton acetate (using a technology they developed over the past 35 years) but carefully done to enhance the frame shape and how it will work on your face. It takes about 4 weeks and up to 80 different manufacturing stages to complete a Johann von Goisern frame before it can start its new life with you.
