The Art of Eyewear Making
Craftsmen’s know-how is the magic by which exceptional raw materials take shape in the most exclusive products. Smith & Norbu’s range of glasses are crafted by skilled artisans using traditional techniques carefully preserved and handed on from one generation to the next.
Manufacturing a piece of spectacles involves as many as 50 separate operations, all carried out exclusively by experienced crafts people. Among a multitude of highly precise individual steps, the horn has to be cut, open, pressed, sawed and thoroughly polished. Through meticulous attention to detail and superb craftsmanship, Smith & Norbu eyewear are of the highest quality and durability and can be cherished for a lifetime.
Fit for the purpose is another of our major beliefs. For that reason, our optical frames are carefully engineered to meet today’s active men needs and every single manufacturing details are carefully thought about. Our products are light, comfortable and resistant.
