15- Fetch Eyewear
Fetch Eyewear was founded in 2004 by Ann Sacks, who realised that it wasn’t necessary to pay a small fortune for a pair of good looking designer frames. After all their cost wasn’t in the materials used, but in huge markups and designer licensing fees.
Ann, then, with the help of manufacturers and quality suppliers, created an independent line of beautifully designed, well made frames at an accessible price.
And to further add purpose to this new optical company, Fetch Eyewear is committed to donating all profits to the Pixie Project, supporting animal rescue, accessible veterinary care and education programs. Talk about initiation and purpose!
But at Buy it To Last, we appreciate that Fetch Eyewear covers their frames with a lifetime warranty that is unmatched in the optical industry. They repair or replace any damaged Fetch frame, no matter the cause: whether it be stepped on, driven on, chewed up… all you need to do is send the frame or pieces of it back to them, and pay the cost per frame for return shipping and handling. (note: only the frames are covered but they are happy to insert unharmed lenses into the new frame).
