Okay, we have to admit, we are pretty excited about these eyeglasses. With the vision of creating the first luxury American brand of eyeglasses, the creators set out on a mission to learn all they could about manufacturing and making eyeglasses. In 2014, the creators moved to Chicago with their families and key employees and got to work. The eyeglasses brand is designed and manufactured in Chicago. Being the first American luxury eyeglasses brand, State had to recruit and train craftsman of all kinds, and teach their workforce how to create eyeglasses themselves.
