Old Vinyl Records made into Unique Eyewear

 

Vinylize: The story so far….

Vinylize began because we wanted to make eyewear on a recyclable basis. We experimented by making old vinyl records into frames. The process has been refined over a number of years into a stylish and sophisticated product.

Some vinyl is valuable because of the content but not all and it’s those unwanted vinyl records that instead of just being thrown  into landfill we remake  into unique and very wearable eyewear.

Today we still make our frames by hand in our Budapest workshop using the methods we developed more than 10 years ago.

 

Vinylize frames are made unique by the vinyl record veneer that graces the front of the frame.

Hand made Eyewear

At Vinylize we believe that music has the power to transcend borders and open minds. We believe that no other company fuses style, music and recycling more perfectly than Vinylize.

Vinylize is hand made by Tipton Eyeworks in Budapest Hungary.

 

​Environmental commitment

Everybody should do as much as they can to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Besides the standard duties of recycling paper, metal, glass and plastic, Vinylize also:
– Re-uses old shipping boxes whenever possible
– Ensures packing material such as Styrofoam puffs and bubble foil is reused.
– Has a ‘paperless office’ policy.
– Obviously transforms vinyl into unique and stylish eyewear as well as cases and stands
