Vinylize

The first Vinylize frames were hand made in Seattle Washington in the year 2000 by Tipton Eyeworks founder Zachary Tipton.
A prototype was handmade from an old Creedence Clearwater Revival album and Zack hit the road to find a way to manufacture frames made from vinyl.
Today, every Vinylize frame is handmade in the European Union by a team of 16 people. Each frame takes six weeks to make.

Vinylize recycles more than 3 tonnes of dump destined vinyl into eyewear and accessories each year.
