In 2014, after years of selling other companies’ products, Ari decided to start selling his own sunglasses. He had experienced the good, the bad and the ugly when it came to the sunglass industry and wanted to take what he had learned and turn it into a quality product people would love.
Today with the help of Catherine, Paisley the dog and their two daughters, ZiZU Optics is a family run Canadian company with its head office in Ottawa. We make products that we love, and our hope is that you will love them as well.
Our name comes from the Finnish word Sisu and its meaning embodies the essence of racing and sport. Translated, it can mean perseverance, drive, integrity, strength, relentless determination. It is that word shouted in every language at every race in the world: Go! We like to think this word also describes us.
We are a proud CANADIAN company with our two manufacturers in Taiwan and China.
ZiZU Optics are designed with the athlete in mind. Whether you are a weekend warrior or member of Team Canada. ZiZU Optics are the result of seeing the good, the bad and the ugly of the sunglasses industry and developing a product that leaves out all the bad and ugly. We are pleased to introduce you to our line of eyewear which have been carefully designed and manufactured for performance and durability.
