Our state-of-the-art African-inspired eyewear is engineered to optimize the viewing experience while adding an effortless luxury to your gaze.
Founded by Nana Boateng Osei and Nana Kwadwo Osei, our products build an allure that enables us to challenge the status quo while successfully meeting the industry standard with help from some of the world’s top brand developers, engineers and artisans.
Our history and future weaves simultaneously, combining a love of African nature, new-age fashion, deep-rooted culture and contemporary lifestyle.
Our vision is simple: shift cultural paradigms, optimize the eyewear experience and bridge the lineage between our forefathers and the generations of the future.
BÔHTEN IS…SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE.
We operate locally across Africa and support environmental sustainability, eyecare, and youth employment.
We incorporate sustainable practices in our operations and products and run tree planting programs in Ghana and Kenya to help turn the tide against rising deforestation. We work with local communities on eyewear education and accessibility and provide employment opportunities to combat some of the highest youth unemployment levels in the world.
Our eyewear aims to connect people to nature, each other and themselves. We invite you to be part of our vision of change.
WE SEE YOU is a creative expression that engages the diversity of ourselves and others. We operate under four guiding principles:
1. RESPECT in appreciation of the presence of others.
2. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT to our daily heroes who lack representation.
3. HONOR in seeing our values, needs and aspirations.
4. GROWTH in celebrating the improvement of people and the communities they serve.
