Did you know? A retrospective on Kirk & Kirk.

Over the coming weeks we will be featuring stories from our archive including historical facts and sentimental stories.

To kick off this series we thought we’d start at the beginning……

n

Did you know the Kirk family have been pioneers in optics since Sidney and Percy Kirk (Jason’s grandparents) opened their first London workshops in 1919?

n

They were innovators, not only in frame design but also in the way they ran their business.  Their couriers were the first to deliver frames by motorbike, roaring through the streets of 1920’s London, setting the standard in both style and service!

n

Three generations later, inspired by their heritage and twenty years of passion for the industry, Jason and Karen Kirk continue to make waves in the industry.
