In 1972, under the concept of “eyewear for dressing as a fashion accessory”, EYEVAN was born as Japan’s first fashion eyewear brand. The products of EYEVAN are made by the combination of craftsmen’s handwork and the state-of the art machine tools in Sabae, Fukui prefecture which stands first in production of eyewear in the world. With the traditional and the latest processes, many of its designs, looking at first glance simple, are actually artful. Only a handful of craftsmen who are exceptionally skillful in Sabae make eyeglasses one by one through about 400 processes. It can be said that they are more like art works than industrial products.
