Marcolin, among the worldwide leading companies in the eyewear industry, stands out for the pursuit of excellence, the continuous innovation and the unique ability to faithfully combine design and Italian craftsmanship with the core values of each brand.The origins of Marcolin Group date back to 1961 in Italy when Giovanni Marcolin starting from an innovative idea, founded the "Fabbrica Artigiana" in Cadore area (Veneto), in the eyewear district, which specialized in the making of gold laminated arms for eyewear. After only three years, the company became Marcolin Occhiali Doublé named after the laminate used in its products to emphasize the success of this idea. In 1967, Marcolin opened a factory in Vallesella di Cadore and launched its first line of products. The ensuing years were crucial for the overseas development of the company, which grew in the United States and European markets, acquiring new licenses. The general headquarters moved to Longarone and the acetate production started.
