The BIRTH OF "theWAREHOUSE"
Like many others, the founder of "theWAREHOUSE", J. Chan, wears corrective glasses since he is a kid. His passion in eyeglasses grows gradually and gets intensified when he further his study in Tokyo.
Japan is famous of its long history in building beautiful, long-lasting, handmade frames. J is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to witness the manufacturing process of these frames during his frequent visits to these craft men's workshop in Fukui, the origin of many magnificent brands, whenever he is having his school break. As an amateur, he is deeply impressed. The glowing desire to share his memorable experience and his joy of possessing these utmost sculpture-like frames empower him to start the "theWAREHOUSE" optical.
The Ultimate goal of "theWAREHOUSE"
