UpLand is a frame collection that was born of pride and gratitude for the majesty of the great outdoors. It originated from strong family ties that nurtured an appreciation for the natural beauty of the woodlands in which the founder was raised. Born the son of a forester and a nurse, he is now an optometrist practicing with his wife, in their hometown in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. They began UpLand with a strong desire to commemorate their heritage and community into form and were dedicated to create a collection that would be as unique and exceptional as those who wear it. The results of their efforts are a collection of handcrafted, real wood frames with a modern yet classic design.
