Recently our founder was interviewed by Tabu magazine, from weekly newspaper Sol. In this excellent article that describes the journey of the brand, Ramiro Paulino gives special emphasis to the manufacturing process in Portugal, the quality of the frames and the deep familial bond that led to Paulino Spectacles. Read the full interview here.
"We are proud to be Portuguese and doing things with great quality besides shoes. It interests me to use what is ours. That's why the cases where we keep the glasses are made in Burel, a handmade woolen fabric, 100% Portuguese."
"Regardless of age, anyone buying Paulino Spectacles gives value to product quality and appreciates the fact that the frames are produced on a small scale by hand. Through the social networks i'm realizing that, mostly, they are people who work or have some connection to the design or arts fields."
