Handmade the old–fashioned way by Richard Tart & The Light Co. Ltd.
Tart Optical Enterprises was a small but legendary maker of eye frames founded in New York City in the late 1940’s by Julius Tart. His nephew Richard, who himself was involved in marketing and manufacturing for T.O.E, has enlisted the expertise of Tommy O’Gara’s The Light Co. Ltd. in Japan (who designs frames for Max Pittion, OAMC, Visvim). Together they have studied and used archived documents and combined this with superior modern technology to improve on Julius original designs. Also using inspiration from the music, art, culture and evolutionary design scenes of 50’s NYC, Julius Tart Optical plan to restore numerous masterpiece frames and develop collections with new designs.
