State Optical CompanyApparel
Scott Shapiro, CEO of State Optical Co., set out to bridge the gap between where a product is made and where it is sold. The result is a luxury eyewear brand that is proud to be truly ‘Made in America’. Their Chicago factory produces their first line of 24 sleek and slick sunglasses and eyeglasses. They employ 50 members of staff who lovingly create each piece using 40 Italian machines. Their first run of products offers plenty of encouragement that they have the quality for the USA to stake a claim in the luxury eyewear market. Italy and Japan should keep an eye out for State Optical Co.
