About Frank Custom

Frank Custom is an independent company with its own manufacturing facility in South Korea. Owner Frank Bae has been making eyewear for 20 years and has been developing his brand for four years with a young team. Their glasses are not only designed down to the smallest detail in their own design language but also produced in-house with all relevant innovations and development steps.

Their collection is split into two areas: The evolving lifestyle division of titanium, titanium combinations and acetate/sun & rimless eyewear – and an easy-to-sell line of the fine material Ultem – an aerospace material – that works great because of its shapes, colours and lightness.
