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.

My husband loves this so much he begged me to order another one. Keeps his glasses where he can find them and it's terrific looking. It goes beautifully with his Easter Islandy tissue holder.

    This is such a great idea! The only con is that it arrived a little scratched up because the wood is soft. It still looks great though, and the scratches kind of go with the whole nature theme. My dad LOVED it, and he usually isn't one for gifts!

          This was specifically requested by our son-in-law. Happy to get him what he wanted but originally we thought it was a strange request. When we received it, my husband & I thought that it was well made, amusing and practical. We will probably purchase more for ourselves & other family members.

              I tried putting the glasses on the actual face, but that doesn't work well. Then I looked behind and saw the place where the ear pieces go, and it all made sense, and works great, and looks so funny, while useful at the same time. She doesn't lose her glasses now!

                  I think my son will really enjoy this. It's smaller than I had expected but I think that will be even better because it won't take up much space on his nightstand. Clever little idea for hard to buy for folks!

                    It's a bit smaller than I anticipated, which is actually a good thing. It looks perfect on my dad's desk or on the side table in the living room. No more, "where are my glasses?" This holder allows him to easily store and find his glasses. Not to mention how cute it is! LOVE THIS ITEM! GREAT GIFT for a mom or dad with reading glasses!
