MADE IN USA EYEWEAR

MADE IN NYC

We believe that craft matters. That’s why wecarefully make each and every Lowercase frame by hand in our Brooklyn, NYworkshop. Our small-batch approach to manufacturing combines new technologywith traditional handcrafting techniques. In our made in America eyewear products, we put craftsmanship above all else,resulting in frames that stand above the rest in quality and design.

NOT JUST AN EYEWEAR BRAND

Lowercase is bringing back a craft. We founded the company in2016 with a mission: to once again localize the trade of made in USA eyewear,while creating a product that is unparalleled in quality and design. Part of anemerging movement in American manufacturing, we operate at a small scale andprioritize craftsmanship above all else.

THOUGHTFULLY DESIGNED, EXPERTLY CRAFTED

Every pair of Lowercase frames is meticulously handcrafted from start to finish in our Brooklyn, NY workshop. Every detail is intentional, every joint and edge impeccably finished. From design to delivery, nothing leaves our hands until it’s on its way to you.
