From Jules Baud to Julbo, a family story

We’ve been called a spectacular brand. In a world of speculation, company mergers and relocation, Julbo is still a family-run, 100% independent business: a company with roots still firmly anchored in the Jura where Jules Baud founded Julbo in 1888. His vision at the time? The design of optical eyewear driven by innovation. We still share his passion today.

From the mountains of the Jura to the world's highest summits this is the Julbo story. Created in 1888 from the passion and drive of Jules Baud, the company is still a family business and has never stopped innovating and amazing its customers. From the first glacier glasses in the early 20th century to its latest optical range, Julbo has always been inspired by the same philosophy: to share our vision of adventure. It’s a vision we invite you to learn more about here.
