Vontélle was founded in 2019 to satisfy the demand for better-fitting vibrant, fashion-forward eyewear. Each of our products and accessories is designed and handcrafted to pay homage to our African ancestry with traditional colors and patterns that channel our African, Caribbean, and Latin heritage. Our patterns use many textiles and designs from highly identifiable, recognizable and respected materials like mud cloth and kente cloth. These designs are tailored to empower humanity to see the world through a cultural and global lens.
Vontélle translated from French means "there she goes," or "to go." Our head-turning eyewear designs work to ensure this level of command in every room. "You GO" style. Our products are meant to empower you to walk confidently in this world: at work, at play, for every occasion. Our commitment to celebratory ethnic eyewear fashion was born out of a need to create designs that are better fitting, durable, bold and beautiful as eyewear is a medical necessity and worn daily.
Additionally, Vontélle works to address vision health disparities in deserving communities. Each year, we commit a portion of proceeds to further vision support services for children and families in need.
Vontélle is partnering with WIN (Women In Need) a New York City organization with 11 shelters to provide proceeds and eyewear to women and families in need.
