Every brand starts with a story. For Ben and Laura Harrison, their story started after their son, Jonas was born visually impaired. While on the lookout searching for suitable eyewear for him, the Harrisons noticed limited options that would keep him stylish all day long. It was then that they came up with the idea of creating a brand of eyewear for children that is fashion-forward and keeps both Jonas and your children looking trendy while shopping affordable.
When it was first discovered that Jonas was born visually impaired, the Harrisons were lucky enough to have access to some of the best eye care in the world. They knew that they wanted to pass that blessing along to parents who don’t have the same access or resources necessary to help their child. With each purchase made, we make donations to CBM International for an annual supply of sight-saving, and often life-saving, Vitamin A Supplements for 2 children.
Jonas Paul’s refined, sophisticated look empowers children to feel confident and parents to be socially responsible with their eyewear purchases.
