Kirk and Kirk handcrafts each pair of eyeglass frames in its French artisan shop, shaping Italian acrylic into fun, unique frames. Jason Kirk founded the brand in 1992 under the name of Kirk Originals. As a third-generation optician, Jason Kirk discovered a box of frames his grandfather and great uncle designed in the 1920s and 1930s while closing out his father’s optical office. These designs by the Kirk brothers inspired him to create his own masterpiece.
From pops of color that brighten the wearer’s face to handmade jewelry finishes imported from England, Kirk and Kirk eyewear is designed around the idea of each pair becoming part of the wearer. Art of Optiks is a local supplier of handcrafted Kirk and Kirk eyewear at both our Edina and Wayzata locations.
