The story of Esprit is a true rags to riches tale. The company began in 1968 and was headquartered in the back of a station wagon. The founder's Susie and Doug Tompkins would finally have proper premises three years later. The name they would choose is Esprit de Corp. By the year 1996 Esprit de Corp would have locations in over forty-four different countries and were ranked twenty-eight overall in brand name recognition out of the top one hundred companies in the world. With the unlimited horizon before them the company has grown by leaps and bounds and continues to become ever more popular year after year.
A great deal of this popularity is due to the fact that the company remains dedicated to youth culture and the spirit of freedom and expression that the original founders tried to place within every piece of clothing. This same free spirited adventurism translates well to their accessories as well including their much sought after Esprit eyewear line.
Esprit glasses are noted for its beauty, functionality, and its dedication to a better world. Esprit is a socially conscious company and they had undertaken many campaigns to raise awareness for various causes including world hunger and aids. The line of Esprit sunglasses is trendy and chic with a warm spirit that evokes joy in those that wear them. They capture youth and enthusiasm and craft it into a functional set of eyewear capable of protecting the eyes while enhancing the appearance of anyone that would wear them.
