Made in America is still hot, and whenever I find a brand that shares our passion for high-quality independent eyewear, I do get excited when hearing they are making these frames in downtown Brooklyn!
Lowercase is such and brand. It is built out of a love for eyewear and an appreciation for true craftsmanship, and tries to once again localize the trade of eyewear to the US, while creating a product that is second to none in quality and design. Those values can be seen in the designs and felt in the construction of their frames.
The design of each of their frame embodies its own particular story. Inspired by music, location, history and events of the city, you truly are wearing a piece of New York. The details of the frames are purposeful and play to each theme. From bold lines to underlying detail, the designs are unique and allow artistic expression for each individual.
Every pair is made in their Brooklyn workshop from start to finish, by combining modern technology with traditional methods. When you buy a pair of Lowercase frames you can trust that they have been handled with the utmost care. They use only the best materials crafted by the some of the finest craftspeople New York has to offer – people who take pride in their craft and refuse to produce anything less than the best.
Go and check out their workshop in the Brooklyn Army Terminal. Its an architectural experience that has no equal in NYC. Not only will you get a behind the scenes tour to see first hand how their frames are made, you will also meet the entire team who crafts these frames from concept through to the last screw.
