We are very happy to announce that we opened our first Karün store in Puerto Varas, Patagonia!
Where is this exactly?
Puerto Varas is a city located in Patagonia, the south of Chile - specifically in "Los Lagos" Region and province of Llanquihue: The city is famous for its German traditions, its natural environment, and its popularity as a tourist destination. It enjoys a scenic location close to mountains, lakes, forests and national parks. It is located 20 kilometres away from the city of Puerto Montt on the shore of the Llanquihue Lake, the second largest lake in Chile.

What can you find in our store?
We decided to build our store with a different proposal, instead of just displaying our products, we are offering our customers a different experience; Where all who visit our store can learn more in detail about our history, value chain and products.
In our store, we invite you to enter the Karün world and to start looking at the world from a different point of view. The first thing you will see when entering will be a mural with different photographs where each of them represents one of our fundamental pillars and you will also find our star product exhibited in the center.
You can find all the products from our different collections, both technical and lifestyle to enjoy nature in all your adventures:
7 Seas Collection, Sailing Collection and Wood Collection - Each of them with information about the materials used and production as well as our accessories: Straps for your sunglasses handmade in Chile.
In the center of the store, you will find two infographic tables: in the first one of them, we talk about our value chain; explaining how we obtain the raw material, the production process of the sunglasses and the work with rural entrepreneurs we do together with Balloon Latam.
In the second table we focus more on the product and you will find information about the design perspectivewe have at Karün: "Our design perspective is not based on inventing new things, but in observing and learning from our planet ...". You can also see samples of the different components, such as lenses and hinges, and learn a little bit more about the properties of the materials.
In addition to all this, you can enjoy a privileged view on the waterfront of Puerto Varas.
Whenever you are in Chile, we invite you to visit our store, learn about our vision & history and to start looking at the world from a different point of view ... do not miss it, we are waiting for you!

We are making the highest quality eyewear, in an entirely different way; instead of a linear and extractive production process - which is used by most companies in the world - we are working hard to build our entire value chain under a circular, restorative and eventually regenerative model.
