The history of Frame Holland goes back to 1936 when Willem Pieter Meulenberg started a spectacle factory under the name ENFA (Eerste Nederlandse Fabrikant van hoorn-, schildpad-, en doublémonturen, First Dutch Manufacturer of horn, tortoise shell and gold-filled spectacle frames). In his room in the attic of the house in Wassenaar, he first experimented with the production of combs, but he soon switched to spectacles. After 1950, the demand increased rapidly. Therefore, the business moved to Katwijk in 1954. Hans Borsboom, the father of the current three directors, became the owner in the early 1960s.
The name Preciosa was connected to the former establishment in Katwijk at the end of the 1940s. Hans Borsboom expanded the collections greatly from the 1960s onwards and created a large expansion abroad. He was aided in the management by his wife Conny for decades. The two sons, Hans and Menno, and daughter Saskia were involved in the development of the business from an early age. After the death of Hans sr. in 2007, they took over the business management. Their heart now lies in the further development of the brands Preciosa and Eyetem and the expansion of the number of national and international cooperating opticians. The rich tradition of the brand Preciosa is an important source of inspiration for them.
