We don't make just another pair of glasses. We make functional works of art that represent an honest connection between you and the people who made them.
Capital is an independent eyewear design and manufacturing studio in San Francisco, California. All our glasses are handmade in the USA by skilled craftsmen with outstanding attention to detail.
Eyewear which protects and enhances your sight should be made to the highest standards in the most responsible way possible. In an age of cutting corners, we take the road less traveled and focus on quality above all else.
