There is a reason why eyewear comes in a variety of styles and materials, people want to show off their individuality; the Vinylize Eyeglasses allows that and more. Fashioned out of old or unwanted vinyl records, the Vinylize Eyeglasses forego the classic plastic, shell or wood frames for something with a little more of a groovy quality. That's right, groovy.

With styles suitable for both men and women, the Vinylize Eyeglasses are made by hand using a laser cutter in Budapest. Although they each boast a unique texture, the black color allows them a more subtly eccentric existence. Each Vinylize Eyeglasses also comes with a custom vinyl record case. They are made by sewing a zipper onto a seven inch single and folding it in half.
