Etnia Barcelona

Fulgencio Ramo was the grandfather of the founder of Etnia Barcelona, and was the man who started the family’s passion for sunglasses. Fulgencio worked for years on the factory floor of a sunglasses company in Barcelona, until he was finally able to create his own factory in Poble Sec in the 50’s. His two daughters came to help him every Saturday, they typed invoices, and nailed the rivets on the fronts of the glasses, learning about the trade. This discreet and hardworking man was imparting his own values to his daughters – those of discipline and sacrifice…

In time a new company was born; this second generation designed, manufactured and distributed glasses to the whole of Spain, maintaining the family’s passion and dedication. This endeavor lasted until the end of the 90’s, when 17 year-old David Pellicer, Fulgencio’s grandson, started to work at the factory. With two generations worth of inherent values, and an abundance of acquired knowledge, fresh-faced David eagerly entered into the company, ready to create something new. Thus, Etnia Barcelona was born.
