The Maui Jim RootsIn 1987, Maui Jim started as a small sunglasses company on Ka’anapali beach in Lahaina Maui. They easily saw the need for a pair of quality sunglasses that could protect users from the intense UV rays of the Maui beaches. Their engineers started with the PolarizedPlus2 lens, which had a cutting edge UV protection coating, and it was a hit with consumers.
When they first started, they had 7 different styles of glasses. Now they produce over 125 styles. Once they figured out how to make high quality lenses that the people loved, they had more time to focus on the frame and making them look nice. Of course, Maui Jim is still at the forefront of sunglass technology, and they continue to develop new coatings for their wide array of sunglasses.
In 2022, Maui Jim became a part of the global Luxury Group Kering, or more specifically, Kering Eyewear. Kering Eyewear is a large parent company in the eyewear industry that is responsible for brand such as Lindberg, Gucci, Cartier, Saint Laurent, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Chloé, Alexander McQueen, Montblanc, Brioni, Dunhill, Boucheron, Pomellato, Alaia, MCQ, Puma and now Maui Jim.
Although you can still count on Maui Jim to produce quality glasses and stick close to their core philosophy of believing that color and light are the key to human experience. Maui Jim says themselves that “Our sunglasses show you its full spectrum, so you can see the world like you've never seen. We believe everyone should experience all 16,777,216 hues of beautiful color that surrounds us every day”.
