Kirk & Kirk provides “Boldly Expressive Eyewear for Creative Individuals” bringing 100 years of optical knowledge and craftsmanship to every frame. Handcrafted in France, the Kirk & Kirk acrylic frames are super-light and extremely comfortable. They produce their own exclusive, original material in colors that are often imitated, but impossible to duplicate. Jason and Karen Kirk have created an eyewear experience that is authentic, inspirational, and confident, just like the people who wear them.
The Kirk family has been pioneers in optics since Sidney and Percy Kirk founded Kirk Brothers in 1919. Motivated by a deep family tradition and a desire to bring something new to the eyewear market, Jason and Karen Kirk started Kirk & Kirk in eyewear line in 2013.
Jason and Karen believe that every collection that they create should bring something new to the market. Their Kaleidoscope collection presents a multitude of colors and dimensions that cannot be reproduced. The Centena collection is the only 10mm thick acrylic eyewear frame construction in the world. Kirk & Kirk frames are now marketed in 30 countries worldwide and have been seen on the red carpet and in popular TV series. Their designs have been nominated for prominent design awards. The Kirk & Kirk team has been profiled in The Guardian and 20/20 Magazine.
Kirk & Kirk has developed their own acrylic which is made in Italy and used in the manufacture of all their frames. The Italian acrylic is extremely durable, light material that, uniquely, does not lose adjustment or stretch out over time. Kirk & Kirk uses German five-barreled hinges in their frames that add strength to the construction of the frame. An endless array of color is possible through acrylic. This is not possible using acetate, the traditional material for eyewear.
All Kirk & Kirk frames are designed in England and crafted in one factory in France from start to finish. This allows them to maintain and trace quality, often controlled by Jason Kirk himself. Made In France has consistently been a badge of excellence in the optical savvy community.
Kirk & Kirk is a family business at heart with optics in their genes. A family with integrity and taking pride in every frame they produce.
