Independent French eyewear brand and environmental pioneers WAITING FOR THE SUN have re-listed this exciting opportunity and are looking for  the ‘right fit’ with agents and/or distributors in Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.


Founded in 2010 by French surfers-designers Julien Tual and Antoine Mocquard, Waiting for the Sun pioneered the development of purely sustainable and biodegradable eyewear.  Patenting a 100% petroleum-free frame material, Bois2, in 2014, Waiting for the Sun expanded to optical markets globally and is recognised as one of the most innovative and committed biodegradable eyewear brands on the planet.


Priced extremely competitively and offering strong margins across sunglass and optical collections, Waiting for the Sun manufacturers metal, Bois2 and bio-acetate frames in segmented collections designed for optical, fashion and surf channels.

Waiting for the Sun is also launching the 1st recycled sunglasses collection in March 2020.


Waiting for the Sun is based in France, with a flagship retail store in Paris and established representation in Europe, Canada and Latin America and is represented internationally by worldwide agency Visionnaires.
