the process
Handcrafted in Japan
Each Archibald frame is individually handcrafted in Japan by Takumi master craftsmen, each of them with more than 30 years of experience in their field. Over 200 manual processes are completed across 16 different workshops in a unique, six-week long guild-like procedure that is now referred to amongst their small community of optical craftsmen as "The Archibald Process".
our lenses
Lenses Made In Japan
When it comes to eyewear, people often downplay the importance of lenses—we don't. At Archibald, we recognise that there is little point in having a beautifully handmade frame if the lenses do not reflect the same dedication to quality. After all, your sight is a gift to be taken care of in the best possible way.
