Handcrafted in Chicago, State frames are all about quality and character.  The first luxury brand of its kind made in America, focuses on bringing out each patients individual style.

A few facts about the only luxury brand made in America

  • Each frame has an average of 70 steps to make them.

  • There are 12 frame styles, designed Blake Kuwahara, an optometrist well known for his eyewear designs.

  • The hinge is shaped like a pyramid representing the State logo.

  • The hinge is custom made and there is nothing like it in the world.

  • The temple has 21 individual dots drilled in representing Illinois, the 21st state.

  • The temple tip is 6mm (standard is 4mm), allowing the end to wrap around the head and give the frame balance.  This keeps slipage to a minimum.
