“Japonism” was built in 1996. From the time on, the eyeglasses have shown us spirit of Japan’s beauty. Japonism originally means the old influence from Japanese arts to European ones in the 19th century. .

Like its brand name tells, all the products look kind of Japan-like though also modern. It is not just beautiful, however also practical. Namely, these two harmoniously cohabit on the “Japonism.”

For example, it is said they use a technique named “oil hydraulic press” on some products of the “Japonism” and just one factory is able to use the tech for plastic frames of specs. We can say it is a special hand to support their high quality. On the other hand, it also means they are making specs of beauty without compromise.



In the 19th century, Japonism meant Japanese arts went over borderlines and were loved by many foreigners. The brand is also. Lately, their products have been set at stores all over the world, like Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, North America, Canada, and France, not just inside.
