Vinylize is a Complete Vinyl Reclamation Project

Vinyl is almost dead as a medium, so what does one do with their recycled vinyl records? Making a pair of glasses is an excellent idea as these bold frames will attest to. Vinylize is reclaiming the entire medium with these stylish glasses frames.

Vinyl still gets a little bit of use here and there by purists, but seeing as they have been pretty much completely replaced by MP3s this is the next best thing. These frames are built strong and the designs are bold and rugged. Most of them take on a wayfarer style and the frames are very thick as well; these won’t be mistaken for anything less than top notch quality.

The set is created by Tipton eyewear, which also uses old records to create bags and other items, proving that the medium isn't as dead as we thought.
