To achieve the ideal wearing comfort
We have developed a new material, Excellence Titanium, through 8 years of research and development with the Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University, a world authority in metals research, with the desire to "pursue the ideal wearing comfort. Excellence Titanium has ideal characteristics for eyewear such as "flexible springiness," "shape memory," and "excellent workability.
This material enables the ideal benefits for eyeglasses, such as a soft and comfortable fit and a long-lasting fit.
Eyeglass frames with the highest attention to detail, created from cutting-edge technology and skilled craftsmanship.
Research and development brings supreme comfort.
In our 20 years of head shape research, with the cooperation of the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), we have measured the heads of people in Japan and other parts of the world and compiled data to enable us to design more appropriate sizes. We have also established and quantified our own optimum conditions for comfort when wearing eyeglasses, and design and manufacture our products with precision to reproduce these conditions in our products. The result of our continuous pursuit of comfort from all directions has led to a supreme level of comfort.
The beauty of human hands.
Charmant's proprietary Neo II technique can be used to apply a variety of colors to areas where other coloring techniques are not possible. This technology cannot be applied without the delicate manual labor of human hands, and is truly the ultimate in craftsmanship.
Cutting-edge manufacturing technology and the highest level of craftsmanship. The combination of these two elements is what makes Charmant's products so special.
Laser micro joining that maximizes the characteristics of materials.
In our pursuit of the ideal eyeglass frame, we conducted five years of research with the Joining and Welding Chemistry Laboratory of Osaka University and developed "laser micro-joining" technology that can join lines as thin as the lead of a mechanical pencil. This technology, which can join metal materials while taking advantage of their flexibility, springiness, and other characteristics, also increases strength, enabling frame designs that are more beautiful and delicate than ever before.
From Sabae to All of The World, All for The Highest Comfort
Charmant was founded in 1956 as a manufacturer of eyeglass frame parts. Since then, the company has evolved into a comprehensive eyeglass frame manufacturer with an integrated production system that allows for the in-house production of all processes necessary for the manufacture of finished products.
In addition, the company has established sales and production networks in the world market, conducted marketing activities, and participated in exhibitions in various countries, and has grown into one of the world's leading comprehensive eyeglass frame companies, with design offices in six locations and annual sales of over 4 million eyeglass frames in approximately 100 countries. In 2009, the company was founded in Tokyo, Japan, with the aim of creating a new experience of comfort. In 2009, we succeeded in technological development and commercialization of "Excellence Titanium," a next-generation material for eyeglass frames that creates an unprecedented level of comfort.
We, Charmant, are continuously innovating in all areas of eyeglass frame manufacturing and sales, including technology, design, and manufacturing process, with worldwide marketing activities.
