Last winter the Russian designer Ulyana Sergeenko showed her collection inspired by Russian folklore and fairytales containing lots of embroidery on clothes, bags and GLASSES! I’m totally in love and bummed out that I haven’t come up with this idea myself!

Thank you to the always inspiring craft blog Zickermans for writing about this! Use Google Translate ; )

Mahonki – Wooden Eyewear Online Store

Juha, founder of Mahonki; an online store, one day stumbled upon a pair of wooden glasses and was immediately amazed. We at Bonocle love wooden glasses as well as you can read about here, here, here and here. It feels so nice against the skin and the frames are very light.

These are our favorites from Mahonki.
