britishproducts.com – great feature on the Kirk family’s 100 year history in optics

In this great feature on britishproducts.com, Iris Froydenlund looks into the Kirk family optical history and celebrates some of the achievements of the Kirk Brothers, bringing us right up to date with the Kaleidoscope Collection and our approach to eyewear design today.
It seems a huge leap from Motex Safety Lenses to an optical collaboration with world renowned pathologist, Mrs Angemi, but this article joins the dots…..beautifully.
