Warby Parker – China Sourcing

In our blog, we want to inspire you to source your products from China. We have already described several cases of successful China Sourcing, including GoPro and Nest Labs. This time, we write about something more common – eyewear from Warby Parker.

Warby Parker – China Sourcing

Warby Parker was established by two entrepreneurs: David Gilboa and Neil Blumenthal. It offers fashionable eyeglass frames at competitive prices. The glasses cost only $95 (including prescription lenses). The company managed to cut the price by using the internet as the main distribution network and establishing a close relationship with a Chinese factory that manufactures all of the frames. The owners of the company often visit Chinese partners and are familiar with the production process.

China Sourcing is like a complicated machine – it takes some time to make it run, but as soon as it starts working, it starts printing out money.
