drypond is a contemporary eyewear company based out of Vancouver, British Columbia that follows a second generation viewpoint on modern eyewear. Established by Aidan Cheung in 2021 with roots stemming between Shenzhen and Hong Kong, drypond is informed by the culture surrounding vintage frames from Europe and America. Each frame is meticulously crafted and produced from start to finish by a family owned factory that has been specializing in eyewear for almost a half century. Utilizing sleek Italian acetate, every style offers a poignant interpretation of retro frames worn by historically influential people. The name ‘drypond’ originates from the phrase ‘Han Tang’, a nickname given to the distinct neighbourhoods adjacent to the prestigious eyewear factory.
