LOTOS was founded by the Schmidt family in Pforzheim, southern Germany in 1872, renowned as the “City of Gold”. Inspired by the inherent value of precious metals, LOTOS has inherited a tradition of creating precious solid gold and jewelry eyewear for over 140 years. Thus, we have amassed an immeasurable treasure trove of traditional craftsmanship and unbroken heritage, sought after by royal families and nobles in Europe over many decades. As the world’s most luxurious eyewear manufacturer, LOTOS has long realised that the word “luxury” represents “the best of the best”. It means the most valuable, desired and rarest eyewear that everyone will love at first sight. Today, LOTOS continues to create remarkable and unique masterpieces with its extraordinary handcrafting technique and aesthetics.
