Crafted in Chicago

Created on: Wednesday, March 22, 2017

There’s something about knowing where things come from that increases your appreciation of them. That’s one of the many reasons we’re featuring STATE Optical Co. eyewear this month. All STATE eyewear is manufactured, start to finish, right here in the Midwest. Each Wednesday, we’re introducing you to one of the craftsmen who makes these beautiful frames.

Aaron relocated from California to be a part of STATE’s crazy dream to build a state-of-the-art eyewear factory in Chicago. His experiece handcrafting acetate frames was invaluable in getting the facility up and running and continues to be vital in the training of a new generation of eyewear craftsmen. 

That’s the beautiful part about the STATE story, each and every craftsman plays such an important role. Eye Care Center is proud to carry STATE Optical Co. eyewear. We encourage each of you to come in to see and feel the difference. Not only will you be supporting American jobs, for each STATE frame sold, Eye Care Center will donate $10 to the Minnesota chapter of Folds of Honor to support the families of our fallen and disabled service-members.
