The Vision Thing

For the truly devoted eco-consumer (there's an oxymoron), we came across these beautifully hand carved, wooden eye glass frames. They are carved by Scott Urban. His company Urban Spectacles, is a gem. Besides wood, Urban also makes frames from recycled records and industrial materials. One of the theories behind the wooden frames is that, unlike mass-produced, plastic frames, they actually breath on your skin, rather than creating sweat. Get the fuller story and more pictures, over at moreninjasplease.com.

Style gossip has it that Urban created several wooden frames for Radio G of Chicago's Hotstyles. Apparently Radio wore a pair to the BET awards recently. The beat goes on.
