Designed for Eric Hilton, founding member of Thievery Corporation. Limited to 200 pieces. 20% of all sales are donated to the World Food Programme. Each polarized frame comes with a custom box, cloth case and a certificate of authenticity.
This uncompromising frame captures Hilton's spirit with its timeless wayfarer shape and clean lines. The frame appears as a bold black frame from afar, but the grooves of classics like 38/45 and Richest Man in Babylon can clearly be seen upon closer inspection. The frame also features the distinctive Thievery Corporation target inlayed in the temple.
Handmade in Europe. Over 3 tons recycled yearly since 2004.
Prescription ready. Most opticians will be able to put any prescription lens into your frame.

How durable are Vinylize frames?
We have had people come back to us after 8 years requesting the same frame. Think of bulletproof glass or a composite bow, the combination of laminated materials adds strength. German TV even made a video about our production technology. Otherwise the guarantee is 2 years.
