Budapest, Hungary-based company Tipton Eyeworks has brought back vinyl from the dead—in the form of eyewear. Called ‘Vinylize’, the hand-made glasses are perfect for lovers of all things vintage, music and eco-friendly. To make these frames, old vinyl records were up-cycled using methods developed over 10 years ago, to carve them into classic shapes—as they were made by hand, each model is unique. Each pair of eyewear also comes with a unique handmade case that’s actually an old 7″ vinyl single folded into half. tms: love this clever idea of using pass glories in the element of vinyl records. Some many times I have wondered into op shops or seen a record store and felt the need to connect to the pass. I take my hat of to the very innovative folk over at “Vinylize”, support a great company by making a purchase.
