Guess where about 95% of eyeglasses are made?
In China of course, as all the major Italian and Western glasses brands have moved their prodution to China.
Some of the glasses that are made in China are then shipped to Europe where a minimal amount of assembly and/or finishing work is done so that the glasses can receive the Made in Italy or in Europe designation.
Famous brands like Armani, Gucci, to name just a few among the big fashion names are made in China and finished in Europe. Eyeglasses made in U.S.A. are hard to find. As well as in UK.
Actualy, this trend is a de facto recognition of the sound quality of the Made in China eyewear which has been deemed (and still is) openly appropriate for the famous brand names during the last 10 years.
We, at Vistalowcost.com, are offering online the same sound quality eyewear as the big names. We just don't make you pay for the huge advertising, the high street shops, plus the posh seasoning.
