it may just be a pair of eyeglasses to you, but to us it’s the purest form of expression, made from the purest materials on earth.

but it took years to accomplish; thousands of hours of learning to make something so prevalent, yet rarely produced in America.

in the fall of 2016, PUPIL produced its first pair of eyeglasses.

we make the most beautiful eyewear on Earth, and you’ll never see us dictate who should wear which or what.

there simply has never been another eyewear brand that made a perfectly fitting pair that was equally flattering. and that’s just not right.

most eyewear styles are created from a fashionable trend or a contemporary opinion. our eyeglasses are simply made for people; exquisitely fitted, and stunningly beautiful for all.

we can promise not just a pair of eyeglasses, but a one-of-a-kind piece of art to make memories with.

each frame is entirely unique; unlike any one we’ve ever made before. completely handmade, exclusive to you.

it’s a 22-step process, consuming over four weeks of production time— all done by hand.

everyone is always looking to eliminate another step, and the world thinks that’s easier. there are machines to do just about everything- including make eyeglasses entirely without humans. but there is nothing special about a machine, cutting plastic for a mass produced ill-fitting frame.

we wanted to make something of actual quality.

we wanted to make eyeglasses in the USA.

and so we did and so we do. everyday our factory hosts a small team of highly trained, yet passionate makers whom design, engineer, and make the world’s most exclusive eyewear on Earth.

it’s something that’s not done in America, or anywhere for that matter.

every pair we make has that unmistakable feel of biotic, organic material. every season, we hand-select cotton-fiber cellulose from the finest Italian farmers, and then add rich colors and designs for striking chromatic finishes. the result is a renewable, hypoallergenic material direct from the Earth.

square sheets are then cut and carved by hand into the desired shape before being softened, shaped, and then tumbled in oak wine barrels for over 72 hours. our proprietary tumbling process ensures the smoothest material with the most striking of finishes.

after final inspection, each frame receives the finishing, laser-engraved stamp of approval— marking signature quality, made in Denver.

in the beginning days, we designed and manufactured everything at our headquarters in Denver’s River North Art District. since then, not much has changed. each pair of pupil’s are still designed, crafted, and shipped from our Denver flagship store and factory. it’s something that we’re proud of– something we’re not about to change.

we knew every pair wouldn’t fit everyone. and we knew that something so organic would change over time. that’s why we offer custom fittings for any and all pupil wearers, free of charge. some like the natural wear of our cellulose over time, some prefer a constant shine– we can help with that too.

we hope you too, will find the desire and taste for the most skillfully crafted eyewear, designed and handmade right here in the USA.
