Master eyeglass craftsmen: Les Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Lunetiers

medailleFollowing the success of the first Silmo Optics and Eyewear fair in 2008, the 14 Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (master eyeglass craftsmen) present at the event decided to set up a voluntary organisation to boost the representation of their craft in France and overseas.

The purpose of the organisation was to promote the French national competition of master craftsmen (Un des Meilleurs Ouvriers de France), to raise the profile of master craftsmen in the field of eyeglass manufacturing and to support the successful candidates.

In 2011, six master eyeglass craftsmen set up the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France Lunetiers Eyeglass Craftsmanship School in Morez. The school offers every optician or worker in the field a chance to raise their skills in frame personalisation and the making of artisan frames, with the help of à la carte training courses given by master craftsmen of France.
