Big in Japan.

Japanese company Eyevan 7285 takes craftsmanship and ingenuity to a whole new level, seamlessly blending tradition with precision, which results in simple, classic designs with timeless appeal. Although their story started over a century ago, two pivotal years in the company’s history transformed Eyevan from “big in Japan” to “worldwide hit.” Proud of its culture and inherent tendency to embrace both tradition and the ultra-modern, Eyevan stays true to its roots by completing all work, from concept to completion, in Japan. And, as one can imagine, it’s no easy task: it takes about 400 processes done individually by a select group of highly skilled craftsmen in Sabae to create just one single pair of eyeglasses. Eyevan’s collection features 46 iterations on 11 styles that were inspired by hand-written drawings from archives between 1972 – 1985, their capstone years. The Eyevan collection can be found at high-end, fashion-forward stores around the globe like Colette (Paris), Liberty (London) and ABC Carpet & Home (New York City).
