The Active collection deliberately resists the current industry aesthetics of technical eyewear. We create sunglasses with meticulous craftsmanship to perform in sport and to transcend it.

Heirloom Eyewear

Article One frames are handmade by passionate craftspeople. The family-owned factories we work with are experts at what they do. We work to give credit where credit is due by shining a light on the hands that touch each frame. The care put into Article One eyewear results in quality you can feel.

Article One exists to create heirloom eyewear that becomes part of your story.

We don’t believe in throwaway culture as much as we don’t believe in throwaway moments. Everything we do, every way we connect, and everything we consume can all be part of something bigger. By crafting quality eyewear you’ll have the rest of your life, we’re saying beauty, craft, care and connection are as important as just about everything.

Dedicated to Independent Optical

At Article One, we believe in the future and the importance of independent optical. We work exclusively with independent optical shops for the same reason we work with small, artisanal factories - authenticity and connection. It is also the same reason we as customers shop at our local independent retailers of any kind. We care about connecting with the individuals behind the business.

If you are not already a retail partner, please reach out.

Passion to Product

Article One was lucky enough to collaborate with our friend and artist Maxine McCrann to create illustrations inspired by our SS22 collection. Because the illustrations were so special, we decided to work with Maxine to produce a limited number of prints.
