JP picked up a new brand for the shop: Savile Row, who have been manufacturing hand-made frames in London, England at The Algha Works factory since the 1930’s.
This family-run business is responsible for iconic custom eye wear as seen onHarry Potter, Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington, Johnny Depp, Eric Clapton and last but certainly not least, John Lennon, whom was a lifetime supporter of their eye wear. The Algha Works factory was also responsible for providing the UK with National Health and Safety frames during the second world war which accounted for 65% of outsourcing, which had a great impact on the development of manufacturing standards.
