Have you ever heard of our Guilt Free Brownies? You can now know that when you eat a brownies from Bril in Stellenbosch, you will be helping somebody in need.

How about Coffee? Well we also love coffee. Some say we may be addicted to it.

They sell all coffees & brownies for only R15 and gourmet smoothies for R35. Follow them on Instagram for more information

  • Coffee = Eye Care

  • Coffee doesn’t ask silly questions, coffee understands

  • Coffee is like a high five in your mouth

  • Coffee can’t cure everything, but it can cure Mondays

  • A day without coffee is like… just kidding I have no idea

TRY THEM ON, AT HOME

EVER HEARD OF HOME TRY-ON?

We have a trendy little online shop selling high quality optical frames. But don’t worry, we understand that you first want to know if they fit and look good before buying them, right?

Introducing our “Try-Them-Before-You-Buy-Them”. You can choose three frames from our online shop and we will send them to your house or work to try on. Yes you can sit in your bed with pajamas and make your decision. Best of all we also offer full refund if you decide to buy any glasses but end up regretting your choice, (but we are confident that will not happen). More details here

OUR EYEWEAR

THE PROCESS, THE COUNCIL, THE RESULT.

Ever wondered how we decide what stock to carry? It is extremely simple. We hand select all our stock, mostly while enjoying a bottle of red wine to ensure we stay creative and daring.  We have great music playing in the background while our passionate people with years of experience and a good eye for trends work through hundreds of options to hand select only the most unique frames to fit the Bril brand and its followers.

But sometimes that is not enough. We have to leave South Africa to go find new frames.

Every year we go to the largest and best eyewear trade shows around the world to find new and exciting brands. We then secured exclusivity brands directly from the factories to ensure limited numbers in South Africa. Making us the main eyewear destination for eyewear connoisseurs.

MORE ABOUT OUR CHARITY

EVERYBODY SHOULD BE ABLE TO LOOK GREAT, irrespective of income.

Project Cat-Eye NPO was founded by Werner many years ago with the main goal of helping people in need with eye care. We feel that irrespective of their financial position, everybody should be able to look great and have clear vision. We believe that when people look great, they will feel great and that in turn will give them more confidence. With more confidence we may just ignite something inside them and things may start to change.

By giving people great vision and making them look amazing, we empower them to either get work, win at a job interview or just see life clearer. As the Gandhi said; “Be the change you wish to see in the world”

Our next big dream is The Vision Box. 

OUR EVENTS

BE BOLD, BE BRAVE, BE YOU

We are professional and work very hard, but we also believe in having fun. Bril is all about Hope & Happiness. We smile and appreciating good eyesight. We love what we do. Not all people will like Bril, but hey, we may not like all people. That is okay. We have decided that we want to align our business with likeminded people that, like us, don’t take life too seriously.

Every First Thursday of the month, Bril in Paarl hosts the Paarl Thursdays, and fun event that may include painting, pottery, art, wine or food. We try to spice it up and keep it fun, so what our instagram for more details.
