About Face

A group of craftsmen in India is trying to help you find your glasses. This hand-carved wooden statuette is perfect for holding your glasses when you're not using them. No more searching around blindly, or trying to remember where you last put them down.

And this friendly face also has a story to tell: it was created by HSSS, a non-profit in India that helps underprivileged artisans, who suffer hardships with physical handicaps, illiteracy, extreme poverty, or being in lower castes, find markets for their wood products.

Handmade of sustainable sheesham wood, native to the Indian subcontinent, bought under supervision and quota from the government of India (which sells the wood of dead trees).

Eyeglasses not included.

Visit the blog to learn more about how these handcrafted pieces are made, and how our partnership is making a difference in the lives of the artisan communities.

It works great for keeping track of your glasses. I just wish they had more design choices since it doesn't really match the décor.

    Comments about EYE GLASSES HOLDER:

    when this arrived, my husband was so upset it was not for him. He know wants one for each of his pairs of glasses (he has 5 pairs). I guess I know what I will be getting him for his birthday. My father, 80 yrs old, has everything and I think this was the perfect gift. Love it. I would have given it 5 stars, but only the test of time will tell if it is durable.

          I bought it for my father-in-law as the father's day gift. At first he didn't understand what it is used for. After explanation, he burst into laughter. He really liked this "nose" and said it has been a great helper to find the glasses when he needs them.

                Comments about EYE GLASSES HOLDER:

                I was worried about the size and quality after reading other reviews. The product did seem very small when I first looked at it; however once it had a pair of glasses on it I thought that the size was perfect. I don't think it would have looked as good if it was larger. The quality was really good, and I am glad I purchased it from this site.

                This is one of those things that gets weird looks from people until they realize what it is, at which point they think it is neat.

                      This is maybe the best dad gift I have ever given my dad. He keeps it in the living room and shows it off every chance he gets.
