Though we carry a wide range of brands (ProDesign Denmark, OGI Eyewear, Miraflex, and Portland Eyeglasses to name a few), we have long believed that the best eyeglass frames in the world are made in the small independent design houses of Japan.  The colors of the acetate used are deeper and more complex.  The lines of the frames are cleaner and more stylish.  The junctions where frame pieces meet are seamless.  The hinges are engineered for timeless durability.  In short, they are the best eyeglass frames in the world.

That is why we are proud to offer these eyeglass frames in our office.  And, why we are prouder still to be able to offer them at a fair price due to the relationships we have built with the area of Japan where these unique eyeglass frames come to life.  Though this is a rural area of primarily green hills and valleys covered with rice paddies, it is also the home of the best eyeglass frames in the world.

These small eyewear design houses have been producing beautiful and unique eyeglass frames for generations, utilizing the technology and materials of the larger Japanese eyeglass frame companies, but the creativity, freedom, and quality of the artisan.  It is in these places where we find the eyeglass frames we offer to you.  Often, the designer of your eyeglass frames will be the fourth generation in the family designing eyeglass frames.  It is this combination of experience, depth of knowledge, and desire to make their place in the family eyeglass frame tradition that makes for such a beautiful blend of tradition and creativity in these eyeglass frames.
