This is pos­si­ble thanks to the catholic ex­pe­ri­ences of Naoki Nak­a­gawa, who runs Nack­y­made with his wife Mocky: start­ing at the age of 17, Nak­a­gawa worked for an op­tometrist, a de­sign com­pany and then a re­tail out­let in or­der to fully grasp ev­ery nu­ance of lux­ury eye­wear mak­ing, then spent a fur­ther eight years as an au­to­di­dact, hon­ing ev­ery as­pect of what he sees as a hal­lowed craft.
