About Us


New York based eyewear brand Jembere was founded in 2013 with a philosophy that is simple - beautifully crafted and reasonably priced frames.

Jembere’s aesthetic is influenced by the juxtaposition of the rich culture of Ethiopia, where the name Jembere means, “my sunset” and everyday life in the big city of New York. Jembere combines wearable styles with contemporary aesthetics. Each frame is handcrafted using top quality materials like Italian acetate and 5 barrel hinges.

Jembere also offers a unique detail when it comes to the cleaning cloth provided with your frames. The cloths are hand woven in Ethiopia by true artisans.
