A perfect mix of tradition and innovation
Conceived in Sweden, born in Japan, Yami eyewear is a product of visionary ideas and down-to-earth professionalism. It is made of only the finest materials, fashioned and assembled by hand in Sabae, by some of the most skilled eyewear manufacturers in the world.
Our Sabae manufacturers combine deep-rooted traditional Japanese frame-making art with advanced technology and the typical Japanese work ethic known as monozukuri. Their professional pride and perfectionism define each step of the process, from cutting and crafting to polishing the final product.
The Japanese city of Sabae has a 1500-year history of artisanal skill and pride. In the early 20th century, traditional lacquerware and cutlery were replaced by eyewear as the local speciality, as farmers started manufacturing eyeglasses to provide an extra income during harsh winters. With time, different individuals specialized in different components, honing their expertise and craftsmanship, eventually making Sabae an international epicenter for sophisticated eyewear production.
A pair of limited-edition Yami sunglasses is a product of unrivalled quality and unique personality. Strong, lightweight and timeless eyewear that will protect you from bright light and dull design.
