our story
Val Sanders and Michelle Haner
The creators behind Saint Owen eyewear, twin sisters Val Sanders and Michelle Haner, pull inspiration from their own worldwide travels to craft rebellious designs for the open-minded individual.

Rooted in the music industry and steadily on the road, the twins have created an unparalleled brand of grit and grace, one which embodies the rock and roll lifestyle with elevated edginess.


From biodegradable acetate to deadstock fabric to recycled metals, our materials are always thoughtfully chosen to have the least impact on the environment.


We manufacture all of our products in small batches to avoid excess product. We use ethical factories supporting small businesses. 


We donate 5% of profits to Eden Reforestation Project. Eden aims to reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests by employing local people to plant millions of trees every year

Small batch production
Born from a musical framework and inspired by worldwide exploration, Saint Owen overthrows the stereotypes of eyewear by combining unabashed designs and unrivaled quality. In the midst of mass production, the brand offers individuality, specializing in small-batch production and limited edition pieces with special attention on craftsmanship and exceptional details.
As an independent brand, Saint Owen is able to move fluidly through the eyewear space, placing an emphasis on singularity and exclusivity. The bar is raised with unique accents such as hand-painted lenses, laminated acetate, and tediously studded frames; the creation of one-of-a-kind details which are entirely exclusive to the brand.

Handcrafted at small-scale factories in Italy and Japan, the intricate designs of Saint Owen are executed by skilled artisans with unmatchable expertise. Meticulous in the design and construction of each pair, Saint Owen elevates each style with special accents such as ceramic nose pads and optical grade stainless steel hinges.


Saint Owen sources top-tier materials to ensure ultimate comfort and durability. All frames are crafted of the finest Italian acetate, tumbled and hand polished to achieve the ultimate finish. CR-39 and Nylon lenses deliver optimal clarity while providing full-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Anti-reflective coating reduces glare and ensures visual ease.
