Company Designer Technology Mission Sam Vance Foundation Locations


Since the inception of Sama Eyewear, we have consistently introduced new technologies to the fashion optical industry that have become a template for other eyewear designers to follow

We have succeeded in challenging the way eyewear was previously produced, and devising entirely new techniques and materials

At a time when other brands were being manufactured in Europe, we focused on producing everything in Japan, a country known for its engineering might and technical innovation.
