MYKITA is an independent eyewear design and manufacturing company combining handcraft with high technology. All frames are handmade at MIKITA HAUS in Berlin.
Founded in Berlin in 2003, the first MYKITA premises were settled in a former children’s day care, called Kita in German. This inspired not only the name My Kita, but also our culture of curiosity and play. We started with a clear aesthetic vision and a readiness to do things ourselves. Creating an open-minded work environment and a sense of integrity toward everything in and around the product came intuitively.
MYKITA established the term ‘modern manufactory’ to describe the multidisciplinary approach of combining handcraft and high-technology processes. In addition to the departments at MYKITA HAUS that see the product through from concept to final quality control, the modern manufactory integrates external experts to form a self-contained manufacturing network.
