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

The eagle-eyed among you will have realised that the Kirk family celebrate a century in optics in 2019. It is one hundred years since Sidney and Percy Kirk converted a dilapidated sewing machine into a lens cutter and began three generations of optical passion.

In this great feature on, 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.
