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.

  • GREAT GIFT!

    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!

  • Not as pictured, a more primitive carving...

    This is a clever idea and the carving is solid. It does work as intended. However, expect a more primitive version than the item pictured. The nostrils are very minimalistic and primitively carved, as is the mouth. The picture indicates a smooth carving of said nostrils and lips. This is a fairly expensive item for what it is. The blurb refers to a "finely carved wooden sculpture." That is not exactly what you will receive.

  • Nice product

    Purchased these for my husband and he actually likes and uses the eyeglass holder. It was part of a birthday gift and at first none of our sons or my husband knew what it was; great fun guessing. Cute holder.

  • Beautiful

    This is a unique and lovely decor for anyone who wears glasses. The wood is well-carved, smooth, and just a perfect amount of gleam. I bought two, one for my husband and the other for my son. They both LOVE it. My husband now wants another for his other glasses, and I would like one too. It seems that they are sold out currently. I hope Overstock would carry more of them soon.
