The brand is the namesake of founder Mitsuhiro Matsuda who was born in Japan in the 1930s. As a young designer, Matsuda moved to Paris in the 60s, where he found inspiration in the beauty of Parisian industrial architecture and the city’s Gothic aesthetic.
A dedicated approach to craftsmanship lies at the heart of Matsuda and is what continues to separate their frames from the pack. With over 50 years of heritage and history, Matusda eyeglasses go through a devoted process of 250 stages from design, production to assembly, all within their factory in Sabae, Japan.
