A Letter From the Founder...
Hello, thank you for visiting our store, I appreciate it so much and I hope you like what you see!
In the beginning of 2020, I started working at a luxury hotel in San Francisco. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I was sent back home. When I came back home to Los Angeles, I started digging deeper on what I really wanted to do and what made me truly happy. I realized my true call was to start my own business, creating a real impact on my customers and on society as well.
A sunglasses brand became the perfect idea, as my family has owned an optical store selling prescription glasses and sunglasses for over two generations. I spent my afternoons after school helping out at the store since I was a child so I already have a foundation for the eyewear industry.
I decided to carry on my family legacy by focusing only on sunwear and I started using my time in quarantine to build my business. I named the company Formosun after my birth country Taiwan since it was once called Republic of Formosa which meant beautiful island. On September 29th of 2020 I finally launched Formosun after months of production.
My goal is that as I grow my business, I can give back to create a positive impact in our society and create a community of empowerment and confidence around us.
