About

We are GOBI Amsterdam, makers of sunglasses and driven by curiosity. 

Founded in the cultural melting pot of Amsterdam, we draw inspiration from a myriad of cultures, customs, and countries; our brand name is a nod to the far Eastern desert of Gobi. Taking this keen interest in the world as a starting point, we set out to distinguish ourselves as a sunglasses brand that encourages seeing the world through a curious lens. 

Our sunglasses bring iconic eyewear of the past to life. We blend design motifs from the 1960s, 70s, and 80s with a contemporary aesthetic. We are no-nonsense; simplicity and functionality merge in a pair of sunglasses that feel just right. We handcraft each pair using high-quality materials, resulting in refined eyewear that is made to last. 

GOBI infuses a sense of wonder into everyday life, providing a new lens through which to see the world and oneself. From creative pursuits to travels near and far, we aim to inspire our wearers to look beyond and seek the uncomfortable.
