Glassic Eyewear - A lifestyle brand that’s democratising branded eyewear. Glasses are expensive because 80% of designer brands are manufactured by one company & sold for Rs. 5000 and above. In India, there is huge demand in the price of Rs.1000-Rs. 4000 but it’s virtually untapped with almost no brands because of this monopoly. Glassic solves this disparity by designing, manufacturing & selling branded quality eyewear directly to customers at under Rs. 3000. Glassic bridges the gap between functional & fashion conscious buyers in the $3 billion Indian eyewear market. Our vision is to dominate the affordable eyewear market & cultivate repeatability by creating affordable, superior quality products & position Glassic as an omni channel lifestyle brand.
