Article One

Aritcle One eyewear frames at Artisan Eyeworks in Ashland, Oregon

Article One is an independent eyewear company based out of Flint, Michigan. They have modern interpretations of classic shapes and are handmade in Northern Italy.

The company was founded as a vehicle to raise awareness of Vitamin A Deficiency (VAD) Blindness worldwide and to raise money for treatment. VAD is cheaply treated with yearly supplementation running about $1 per year, yet it is estimated that 500,000 children per year lose their vision from VAD.

To date, Article One has donated $17,000 to the Helen Keller International in support of VAD treatment.
