Design, Distinctiveness & Know-How

Key Optical Europe is a French-Italian female-run company that operates as a protagonist in the eyewear sector for over 20 years. Born in 1998 in the Florentine countryside on the initiative of Sabrina Rege Turo, a young entrepreneur of international training who wanted to make the know-how inherited from her family available to the market.

A tradition that began in France in 1924 with Gustave Régé-Turo. Of Italian father, Gustave opened a craft workshop of frames made of horn, rigorously handmade. A knowledge passed down from father to son for four generations, which Sabrina has breathed since her childhood. It is her father, Robert Claude Régé-Turo who passed on.    

The experience and technical preparation, acquired in the field, have allowed to know in depth all the technical characteristics of the frames.

Our intent is to design products that can meet all the needs of the market, offering the best product at the best price. Thus making professionalism and experience available to our partners and promoting long-lasting partnerships.

Key Optical Europe is the result of over 90 years of work in the eyewear world.
