Quality You Can Feel

Created on: Wednesday, March 29, 2017

One of the most tempting reasons to make products in the USA is the level of control you can hold over production. For STATE Optical Co. frames, made in Chicago, that means using only the finest materials and employing only the strictest quality control standards. You can feel the difference as soon as you pick up a STATE frame.

Entering the STATE quality control room just off the factory floor, all the noise and hustle of production fades away. Even though STATE frames are inspected every time they pass hands from one craftsman to another, the last step in the making of a STATE frame is final registration. This doesn’t just mean one last look over, it means every last millimeter of each frame is scrutinized against near-perfect standards. STATE cofounder and craftsman, Marc Franchi, would have it no other way; it’s the only way to produce American luxury eyewear.

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.
