“Old world technique, new world expression.” In a world that emphasizes immediacy, Matsudaeyewear choose to anchor itself in traditions of craftsmanship and thoughtful execution. Each of Matsuda’s designs is crafted by hand in the renowned eyewear workshops of Sabae, Japan, requiring up to two years and as many as 250 steps to bring to life.
This is eyewear created through 50 years of experimentation and creative exploration: each frame reflecting a unique journey from concept to construction. Using the finest metals in the world — titanium, stainless steel, sterling silver, and 18k solid gold — Matsuda master Japanese craftsmen transform raw materials into intricately detailed works of art, prioritizing quality over mass production.
Matsudaeyewear’s Japanese acetate forms are sculpted exclusively from an organic plastic derived from cotton and cured for over three months prior to construction. This delicate process produces uniquely rich colors with unrivaled strength and flexibility. Each finished creation is an art object unto itself — as pleasing to the hand as it is to the eye.
