  1.  The price you pay is for the product, not the name.


We all know the favorite eyewear companies, right, but why should we keep giving them money?  The more prominent corporations are encouraged to pump out cheaper products for a more significant price.   When you buy these expensive brands, you are paying for the name or emblem on the frame and not the quality of the product.  We should be purchasing trendy frames from independent companies and helping out the small businesses that take pride in every frame that is made.


  1.  Independent brands depend on quality and creativity.

Independent brands depend on their quality and creativity. For instance,  Dolabany Eyewear has been in business for over 30 years.  Mark Dolabany designs and produces high-quality eyewear and believes that eyewear should only be fitted and sold by professional eye care providers.  Mark Dolabany, the CEO, takes pride in the quality and creativity in every one of his designs. Their brands, Dolabany Eyewear, and Plume Paris are both produced with premium materials and exceptional workmanship.  Their hand-made eyeglass frames are made the old-fashioned way using high-quality acetate, real rivets, and multi-barrel hinges.


  1.  Support the independent label

Independent eyewear labels want to help the small independent business as opposed to the commercialized stores.  Most of them included Dolabany Eyewear, commit to not selling their products on the internet. Selling frames online takes away from the personal and professional fitting of the frames.  Every face is different, and it takes a professional, licensed optician to make sure you are getting the right frame to fit your face. When you purchase from the big box stores, you are supporting the publicly traded companies and not getting the professional, high-quality, handmade frames that you would get from an independent wholesaler.
