SALT. Optics

Since its founding in 2006, SALT. has sought to bring the human connection back to eyewear. Their philosophy, “simple things made well”, highlights the relentless pursuit of design and manufactured perfection.

Simple Things Made Well

Drawing its design inspiration from nature, SALT. Optics emulates the shapes and elegance of the natural world. SALT.’s mission is to bring nature’s inspiration to their eyewear, drawing on an unmistakable human connection to tie the natural and man-made world together.

Shunning mass production in favor of a true human element, each piece of SALT. eyewear is finished by third generation Japanese artisans. This personalized process gives each frame an unmistakable identity, as no two are ever alike. The quality provided by their hand-crafted process is superb, as each of the 130 steps required to create a frame is obsessively completed by true artisans.
