Matsuda was founded in Tokyo, Japan in 1976. The Japanese frame line takes inspiration from architecture, fashion, and the euro Gothic area. The frames go through a 250 step process that can last up to 71 hours per frame. There are 13 craftsmen of this frame line, all located in Japan!
In a world that emphasizes immediacy, we choose to anchor ourselves in traditions of craftsmanship and thoughtful execution. The distinctly Japanese approach of combining handcrafted techniques and innovative technology guides our philosophy of experimentation and is unmistakably Matsuda. Each finished creation is an art object unto itself — as pleasing to the hand as it is to the eye.
