The precision of an eyewear artisan

Meet the artisans

Miwa-san, Soldering worker

My work is all about soldering the hinges and temples. I've been doing it for almost 14 years. I like eyewear and I like what I do. It is all about the precision and details. It's incredible how much goes into crafting a single pair of Ørgreen frames.

"It makes me so proud to think that all the work I do is on people's faces all over the world."

Hiro-san, Polishing worker

I've been working in this industry for 30 years and the last 9 of them for Ørgreen. Ørgreen frames are flat and it's difficult to make them 100% perfect and this is why I am very proud of my work. Still I feel I just started learning about the polishing of a frame even though I have been doing it for so many years.

"I am still in my learning process but I want to become like my teacher. He is still better than me but soon I will close the gap."

Tohiro-san, Colouring master

I’ve spent 20 years on colouring frames. I’m now the manager controlling the staff and the overall processes. I work closely with Sahra in developing the exact colour hues that she visualises. Sometimes its challenging because she finds real-life colour inspiration references that we together have to translate into the exact same colour hue on a titanium frame.

“It often requires many iterations to fine-tune and hit the exact hue Sahra envisions, but its the best feeling when we nail it."

The Power of Craftsmanship

Individually handcrafted over 4-6 months. Each frame goes through more than 100 production steps. Meet our Japanese artisans making it all happen.
