Independent Optical

At Article One, we believe in the future and importance of independent optical. We only work with independent optical shops for the same reason we work with small, family owned 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. We care about the expertise of the proprietor and the community created through local independent businesses.

We are committed to only working with independent optical in a transparent and supportive manner that ensures the success of our partners. If you are not already a retail partner, please reach out.

Exceptional Quality and Service

We don’t believe in throwaway culture, relationships, or experiences. This is the driving force behind our brand and our team’s passion for creating eyewear and service in support of independent eyecare professionals like you. Our commitment to this promise can be felt from the exceptional construction of the frames to the quality of the interactions your team has with ours. We come to work every day excited to serve you and to design and build products in a way that strengthens independent optometry and eyewear.

Our team in Minneapolis is always ready to answer a question or solve a problem, and guarantees to ship all available orders by the next business day.

New Perspective on Active Eyewear

We are on a mission to create the most beautiful eyewear for active lifestyles. Because we lead active lifestyles ourselves, our entire team is passionate about bringing beautiful eyewear to the athletic world. We create sunglasses with meticulous craftsmanship to perform in sport and to transcend it. We want athletes of all levels to own versatile eyewear that emboldens personal style while enhancing movement from the saddle to the city, trail to town, or racing to relaxing.
