Where are the best quality frames made?

There is great quality frames made all around the world. With a fascination of frames coming from European countries like Italy and France, the biggest designers opt to have their high quality frames crafted in Japan. The quality of the Japanese organic cotton based acetates and Japanese titanium added with the level of delicacy each piece is handmade with, it’s no wonder why Japan lead the way in the eyewear world.

The time and energy that can go into a single piece of eyewear  can sometimes mean that only 10-15 frames can be made in a day. But, when you have the finished product on your face, only then will you appreciate and understand the work that can go into a single frame.Most independent eyewear designers have all their frames hand crafted, wherever they’re made in the world. It’s the subtle differences from frame to frame that give each one individuality. As quoted by Graham Cutler of Cutler & Gross “If you buy a handcrafted pair of glasses or sunglasses, you want to see the tiny inaccuracies, the straight, raw edges of the plastic, the pins – they give character, make them unique to the wearer. The Cutler and Gross customer has always been an individual. Eccentric maybe, but a rare breed, certainly.”
