Sleek eyewear made from upcycled vinyl records

Upcycling obsolete tech is all the rage right now! We have recently covered cassette tapes turned into art, records turned into canvases and now, vinyl records made into sexy designer eyewear. These ‘Vinylize‘ glasses by Tipton Eyeworks are sleek and polished just like the ones you would buy in the store, except these glasses are made from old unwanted vinyl records.

The closeup shots below show the incredible level of craftsmanship that goes into each piece. The team has been testing and refining their unique process for over a decade. Each pair is handmade by Tipton Eyeworks in Hungary. Watch the video below to learn more about the glasses and to see how they are made!
