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.

The product was advertised in a World Market ad flyer, however, when I went out there to purchase one for a gift, they were sold out. In searching the web, I was fortunate to find that Uncommon Goods had the same item. The item was for a birthday gift for my son, one for his bedroom and one for his office. [...]. He finds them handy and a convenient way to store and find your glasses after setting them down. I also purchased a holder for myself and it sits on my computer stand.

I think its a great gift especially for someone like my dad who's always losing his glasses. For some reason I thought it would be bigger & I had hoped they would have shipped the back story about how its made with the product. Other than that I have no complaints & I know my dad will love it.

    Great gift for someone who wears glasses. While the final received product didn't look exactly like the one in the thumbnail (in terms of facial features), it still did what it promised and it looks very cool! Everyone at my office asked where they can get one.

        every eye glass wearer should own one of these and I loved that it was on the masculine side, I bought two ....one for my college student (who is 20) and the other for my husband (who is 65) works for both! They LOVE it! The bottom being square allows you to write a sweet sentiment as well!

            Used for what it was made for glasses.
            It's a great product like giving people in other parts of the world a hand up not a hand out makes better people.
            There is not anything bad about this product kind of cute my husband already named him.

            Yes yes and na. Like supporting people in other parts of the world to give them a hand up by buying their products. This is the way you help people not by just giving them stuff. It makes better people.
