Melanie loved selecting the best new Kenzo frames by Masunaga at Vision EXPO 2017.
We love the combination of sheer elegance and workmanship from this independent designer.
Masunaga frames have been carried at EYESPOT since our opening in 2011. These remarkably well-made frames combine obsessive craftmanship with simple elegance.
Fukui, Japan is one of the three largest production regions for optical frames in the world. Masunaga Optical premiered the production of eyeglasses in Fukui in 1905.
In order to raise the quality standards of the products, Gozaemon established a guild like system where full-fledged craftsmen could create their own businesses.
There are as many as 200 manual processes involved in making an optical frame.
The integrated production system improves the detail and quality.
