Article One is an independent eyewear company based in Flint, Michigan. Their frames are handmade in a small village in Northern Italy at the base of the Dolomites. The family-owned factory they work with has 12 craftsman who are experts in what they do. The care put into each frame results in quality you can feel.
In addition to this, Article One was founded to raise awareness and funding for Vitamin A deficiency in developing nations. Most people are unaware that about 500,000 children globally go blind each year from Vitamin A deficiency, and half of those children die within 12 months as a result of Vitamin A deficiency. Even more astounding, it costs just one dollar for a year’s worth of supplements for one child. That means a one dollar donation to Helen Keller International will ensure at least one child will not die or go blind from vitamin A deficiency.
Article One has donated over $17,000 to Helen Keller International's vitamin A supplementation program thus far.
