About Lowercase:

Built out of a love for eyewear and an appreciation for true craftsmanship, Lowercase was established in 2016. We founded the company with a mission: to once again localize the trade of eyewear to the US, while creating a product that is second to none in quality and design. The value in our unique approach can be seen in the designs and felt in the construction.  Every pair is made in our Brooklyn workshop from start to finish, by combining modern technology and traditional methods. Combining some of the finest materials and suppliers with the talent and know-how of New York craftspeople, Lowercase is a return to exceptional, American made eyewear. Each pair goes through a 30 step process that takes 2 weeks to complete.
