Why did you choose this product?
I bought this for my son, so he has a place to store his glasses at night and to reduce the chance of them breaking. We absolutely LOVE this holder. It is cute, quirky, and perfect for any age. We always joke about where on earth will he store his glasses...a fun bedtime ritual. Great quality, looks great on his shelf, and practical, too!...

Story Behind the Art:
This product is finely made by ASHA Handicrafts, in Mumbai, India. ASHA, established in 1975 as a non-profit organization to promote Fair Trade practices, represents more than 5,000 workers in 19 different cities and villages in India. They help small-scale handicraft cooperatives that are disadvantaged because they lack financial and marketing knowledge. Asha in Sanskrit means 'Hope', and ASHA has brought hope into what was largely a 'hopeless' situation by providing a marketing outlet for the craft of talented artisans.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

It looked exactly like the picture. My only issue is that when it arrived the base had broken from the holder. I fixed it with a little glue and now it's good as new. My father loves his gift and that is what matters!Read More
I love this item!! I bought four of them so far...they make a great inexpensive gift for anyone who wears glasses...even sunglasses! They are hand carved out of beautiful wood and are cute, kitchy and useful...what more could you ask for? So far everyone who has received one raved over them and wants to get some for their friends. I love that each one is unique in wood grain and slight variations in color...it almost makes you want to name them! If you want a gift for someone and don't know what to get them...this is a perfect choice!Read More

This is for father's day coming up
I bought one previously for my husband and he loved it so I thought it would make a good Father's Day gift as well.
This reminded me of a ceramic piece my grandmother had ages ago next to her bed. When she went to take a nap she'd hang her glasses on it. Ever since I started wearing glasses I've been looking for something similar. Plus, it's wood!
