IDEAL

Seeing the market of precious niche products
from the global viewpoint,
we strive to identify
the role of our company and
to accomplish
our mission for which we have been asked.

PROPOSITION

Mari Vision Firmly believes
Our mission is to discover a precious 'Object'
in a small field, to fix our
eyes upon "Soul," "Story," and "Passion" which exist there,
and to send out messages with our sense.
Eyewear is an article upon which we have concentrated such ingenuity of ours and for which we have tried hard to find a solution. The position of our company is the sure place en rout to an uncertain destination, the
future of eyewear world.
We will strive to seek 'Individuality' in all
eyewear
and to talk to people in a community with our own words.
And we will not deal it as merely an object, but we would like to convey our story, our reason, and what we are aiming at for the future.
Regarding not only eyewear connected
with "Eyes" such as lenses and frames but also all the related goods,
we promise to speak to
you through the "Eyes" of our own.
