Why TAVAT? Years ago, while questioning my future in optics during a visit to Venice, I discovered an independent optician that inspired a new perspective on my career. It was there I purchased a pair of TAVAT SoupCan sunglasses. Nine years later, these sunglasses remain one of my most complimented accessories, and I still wear them proudly. The innovative construction and iconic, unique yet wearable design of TAVAT fascinated me. It’s a proud moment for us as TAVAT has reached out to hold one of our exhibition events.
