Article One exists to create heirloom eyewear that becomes part of your story.
Article One frames are handmade in Italy.
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.
Watch our short film, A Labor of Love, to get an inside look at the intersection of family and craft. Following the Bavaresco’s and the Berton’s, the piece highlights two family-owned eyewear factories in Northern Italy, reflecting on the significance of relationships, tradition, and (a notably Italian) work-life balance.
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.
