Gouverneur Audigier, an ancestral “Savoir faire”

Gouverneur Audigier is one of the oldest active French eyewear manufacture. Today, the manufacture continues to operate at the address where Clément Gouverneur founded the House in 1878, using the original technology.

Each frame is handcrafted by passionate craftsmen respecting a «Savoir-Faire» gleaned over the past 137 years. Created from a bronze wire, current designs are inspired by the rich history of Gouverneur Audigier’s savoir faire.
