Takeyoshi STORY mfg.
D+ Black Rose


Made in Japan.

The STORY mfg. Takeyoshi is custom made in Japan using District Vision Earth-Tech – a proprietary bio-material made from the cellulose of non-edible plant scraps. Earth-Tech is part of a closed-loop system, meaning the frame material is both biodegradable and recyclable for future use. The temple is inscribed with "movement is a blessing" in Arabic.

The included Sun Pouch is naturally dyed with babul bark, madder, iron and myrobalan, and hand crocheted in India. The collaborative label is block printed at a community block print unit at an Autism centre run by mothers in partnership with Tharangini Studio.

The gifted necklace is hand carved from soapstone, and finished with tulsi wood beads. The hangtag is handmade paper composed of cotton offcuts from STORY mfg. production that are too small to re-use in garments.

STORY mfg. was born out of a desire for a more authentic, fulfilling and kind approach to fashion – one that doesn't involve a trade-off between aesthetics and consciousness. They are a husband and wife team and work with a large group of dyers, weavers, embroiderers and tailors.


The Most Comfortable Sports Frame
Our hypoallergenic adjustable nosepad is mounted with titanium screws and a titanium core to produce the lightest, most comfortable sports frame. We recommend visiting a preferred optician to ensure a durable and comfortable fit.

Each frame is accompanied with an Ultrasuede® pouch, serving as both a storage solution and a lens-cleaning accessory. Ultrasuede® is a soft material with a luxurious texture incorporating 30% recycled plant-based fibers, utilizing advanced fiber technology pioneered by Japan’s Toray Industries, Inc.

A Transitionary Lens Technology
D+ Black Rose is an advanced sports lens engineered for trail running and physical pursuits that involve changing light conditions. The lens has a variable light transmission allowing 15.6% to 35.15% of light through. This enhances visibility in a variety of performance conditions.

The Sports Lens of the Future
D+ lens technology is constructed from a proprietary form of polycarbonate, which is shatterproof. The lens interior features an anti-reflective application for holistic eye protection. The lens is finished with our oleophobic treatment making it water and oil repellent.
