- HAND CRAFTED IN VALDOBBIADENE
The “Vanguard Collection” is exclusively manufactured in Valdobbiadene, Italy, utilizing wood, horn, and other precious materials that have been ethically sourced. The factory sits atop a hillside overlooking a dense strip of vineyards, within short distance of the nearby Italian Alps.
“Our obsession with quality demands that we utilize only the most precious materials, develop the most innovative hardware, and partner with the most respectable eyewear manufacturers in the world in order to create a rarefied product that embodies a perfect balance of form, function, and fairness.”
- Relying on his twenty-plus years of experience in the eyewear industry, Mr. Mage selected two of the worlds most exclusive factory partners for the task of manufacturing his eponymous line of spectacles. These collaborators, in both Japan and Italy, employ fair and ethical production methods that uphold J.M.M.’s business standards of respect, compassion and transparency. Paired with artisanal technical guidance, J.M.M. redefines eyewear production methods in subtle ways, allowing for the full development of sculptural design without the obstruction of fit or comfort, enabling form and function to thrive in holistic balance.
OVER ONE HUNDRED HANDS TOUCH EACH J.M.M. SPECTACLE BEFORE ITS ARRIVAL AT THE LOS ANGELES FACILITY, RESULTING IN AN UNSURPASSED QUALITY- CONTROL PROCESS.
Each component of Jacques Marie Mage eyewear is carefully considered throughout every phase of its creation, from conception to completion, in order to offer products that are rare, exquisitely crafted, often risqué, and always relevant. Over one hundred hands touch each J.M.M. spectacle before its arrival at the Los Angeles facility, resulting in an unsurpassed quality- control process. Our tolerance policy includes a final twenty-point measurement test for all fit specifications and detail finishes, virtually eliminating any chance of production flaws. Crafted with the highest level of manufacturing prowess and tested with the lowest tolerance standards possible, Jacques Marie Mage products are designed to last a lifetime.
Jacques Marie Mage sources an assortment of wood, mother of pearl, and ethically traded horn for the material composition of our Vanguard Collection. The Italian manufacturer responsible for the undertaking of this collection is the only one in the world that has achieved success in the lamination process of such materials. The factory’s artisans have dedicated three, painstaking years to developing and testing the unique process of precious materials lamination, providing J.M.M. the ability to concoct color combinations never before seen in eyewear.
