Andy Wolf stands for unique glasses, handcrafted in Hartberg, Austria. It was founded by the three friends Andreas (Andy), Wolfgang (Wolf) and Katharina to produce classic and contemporary frames for individuals. In 2006, the three of them sat down to enjoy a meal of meat and fish from local meadows and waters, market-fresh vegetables and good Austrian wine from the kind of vintner you know personally.
There was one question at that table:
Why aren’t glasses made in such a personal, natural and familiar fashion?
No sooner said than done, they established their base at the Ökopark in Hartberg, which perfectly fit their beliefs. Back in 2006 there were 17 people working there, now 58. Every beginning is hard. In this case especially, because producing an entire product in Austria inevitably requires higher prices. Now they are being represented in over 45 countries. They have stayed together as a family, which includes a fair and amicable relationship to their clients. From design to prototyping, production and distribution, they handle everything there.
Only the acetate for the frames is sourced from Italy, simply because they have the finest available. This way the classic and often unconventional frames are not just pretty, but also durable and sustainable.
