Cats are known for their excellent vision both day and night, their agility, and their history of crossing time and continents. With these exceptional qualities, the cat became the official emblem of MOREL in 1957. Jacques, the grandson of Jules Morel—who founded the company in 1880—had the brilliant idea to create a maker’s mark to stamp MOREL’s gold frames: a cat surmounting a capital M. This custom, borrowed from jewelers, later inspired the creation of the MOREL logo. As modern as on the first day, the cat embodies our heritage, our independence, and more than ever, our commitment.
