Jacques Marie Mage is a maker of rare, collectible spectacles that combine historical motifs with precious materials, innovative production methods, and ethical business practices.
Founded in 2014, by Jerome Jacques Marie, our mission is to create rarefied experiences that elevate the senses. To do so, we embrace a unique palette of ideas, and manufacturing techniques to produce powerful, sophisticated, and meaningfully idiosyncratic products that embody an uncompromising balance of form, function, and fairness.
At JMM, we delight in attempting to see through the eyes of those artistic and intellectual giants that came before us. Our design practice is inextricably informed by the cultural revolutions of the last three centuries, drawing encouragement and inspiration from the great epics and anti-heroes of our collective histories. We attempt to observe, reconstruct, and re-tell these stories via products that maintain the high standards of quality and taste upheld by our progenitors.
