KWIAT’s history

A flower that continues to bloom

In Bulgaria, more than a quarter of a century ago, a flower was born from the love between a Polish woman from a noble family and a Bulgarian from Svoge. In 1962, Mr. Michael Cwetkow met Dr. Maria Bierut and immediately fell in love. They are a wonderful family, despite the difficulties along the way. In 1991, Michael and his son Pawel decided to start a company in Bulgaria. After much deliberation on how to name the company, the family decided to stick to the Polish word ‘KWIAT’. This word means a flower and so Michael Cwetkow connects it with the love for his wife. The love story continues…

The history of KWIAT continues…

In the early 1990s, Pawel was a student in Poland and met Edyta there. They fall in love and decide to return to Bulgaria. After their arrival, Pawel and Edyta began to develop the company KWIAT, becoming representatives of world-famous eyewear brands. They soon discover that it is actually their calling to create glasses themselves. So in 2003, Pawel and Edyta opened the KWIAT eyewear brand. Thus, they start producing designer sunglasses and prescription frames, in line with both the world’s leading fashion trends and the regional characteristics and needs of people around the world.

The first KWIAT collection

The preparation of the first collection lasts two years and has 45 models. This collection is the beginning of the Bulgarian eyewear brand KWIAT, as it is today. The company blooms like a flower, planted in the fertile soil of healthy family values and watered with much love. Even the paintings on the walls in the office were taken from the old house of Pawel’s grandmother, and some of the employees have been with the company from the beginning.
To the question: “Why do they decide to develop in Bulgaria?”, Pawel and Edyta answer as follows: “We believe that business can be done anywhere, but only in Bulgaria we can keep this love and these values that are embedded in the foundations of KWIAT!”
