What is “Independent Eyewear”?

What is “Independent Eyewear”? For many, glasses are part of a powerful fashion statement, so finding the perfect pair is important in terms of both your comfort and personal style. Currently, in the eyewear industry, there are two main categories: Independent & Non-Independent Eyewear. Non-Independent Eyewear brands cater to large volumes of people through mass production of frames. On the other hand, Independent Eyewear brands focus on targeting a specific population. These brands share a goal of making unique and quality frames that are not mass-produced.

Freedom to Design

Even though independent eyewear doesn’t consist of some of the more recognized brands, they’re still designer frames. They’ve long been popular among celebrities and the general population alike. Because independent eyewear addresses a more specific group of people, they can more easily directly address the current fashion trends.

Incomparable Quality at Affordable Prices

Unlike mass-produced eyewear, independent eyewear aims for long lasting quality. Monetarily-wise, both independent frames and non-independent frames are around the same price point.

Frames with a Purpose

Additionally, an unique feature about independent eyewear is that often independent eyewear brands each come with an unique background. For example, some brands strive to promote humanitarian causes while other brands strive to promote their eco-friendly cause through the special production of the materials used in their frames. Therefore, independent eyewear each come with a story that is carried throughout their products.
