MINGUS

Handmade from recycled vinyl

Lense: Sun

A nod to the jazz double bassist, pianist and composer Charles Mingus, this heavy square design is one for those who like to improvise. The square shape is at once retro and futuristic, a true trendsetter as both an optical and sun style.

Handmade in Europe using recycled vinyl. Over 3 tons recycled yearly since 2004. 

Prescription ready. Opticians are able to put any prescription lens into Vinylize. 

The unmistakable vinyl record exterior makes every Vinylize frame a unique piece. The eyeglass frame appears as a bold black frame from afar, and upon closer inspection individual tracks shimmer and shine. The vinyl veneer lends strength and durability to the frame.
Riveted 5 barrel hinges on sculpted temples last forever. This ultra durable frame is prescription ready and comes with a 2 year guarantee. No two Vinylize are ever alike. Handcrafted in Budapest.
