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.

Nice quality item that makes you smile

Comments about UncommonGoods Eye Glasses Holder:

I am overall very happy with this witty eyeglasses holder. It is just the right size and height and makes me smile. The only drawback was that the carvings on the nose seem to be a bit asymmetrical, I don't think that's intentional.

      My husband often misplaces his glasses, so this was the perfect little gift. It sits by his nightstand. My daughter gets a kick out of it.
