Bohten turned 5 this year, which makes an ideal moment to review what we’ve developed so far and where we’d like to go. We have taken the first major steps to become a leader in eye care and manufacturing in Africa with the launch of our first production hub in Accra, Ghana. The facility will specialize in producing frames, lenses and accessories . This will pave the way to opening similar hubs in other developing countries across the globe to help stimulate their local economies

Our Story - Vision of change
It is on the mountainous region of Kwahu, highest habitable place in Ghana that Bôhten began its journey. Nana Boateng Osei, Founder of Bôhten, had the initiative to use reclaimed material to manufacture an eco-luxury eyewear line. He draws inspiration from his Ghanaian roots, from his love of nature but mostly from his late grandfather Andrew Hanson Osei, who was Ghana’s first land surveyor in the 60s.
The launch of our factory in Canada gave us the hands-on experience and expertise we needed to develop our own production blueprint. We are now poised to become the global leader in eyewear manufacturing in Africa, with key benefits including new avenues of innovation, use of locally accessible materials and custom fit glasses. Our move to Ghana means applying knowledge into a largely un-tapped market.
Our mission is to establish an eyewear manufacturing supply chain on the continent, and in essence become not only the ﬁrst “Africa-inspired” eyewear brand, but also the global leader in eyewear manufacturing in Africa
