I love to read

A short while ago I made a custom Mia pouch for Sophie who told me she loved it (thank you, Sophie) and asked me if I ever considered designing a reading glasses case. She was looking for a sturdy eyewear protection (because the hard case she uses now looks like a truck has run over it, as she put it) but she gave me the idea of offering a softer, yet still well padded version in my shop.

It was time to put the collection of my father's old neckties from the 70's and 80's to use...

The result is this padded eyeglasses cozy in dark chocolate wool tweed (slightly striped), originally intended for men's suits, adorned with a piece of rusty brown vintage necktie and two matching buttons. The case is lined with dark aubergine padded lining and is approximately 18 cm (7") long and 8 cm (3.2") wide across the opening. It closes securely with an elastic loop.

I am still testing the new design and thinking of ways to improve it so I was very thrilled to get a message from lovely Dominika @ PanicaLab this afternoon - she has included the new eyeglasses cozy in her I love to read treasury!

Thank you!


  1. I love your work!! The eyeglasses cozy is gorgeous.
    I'm so glad you liked the Treasury.

  2. What a great idea! You don't see too many of those anymore and certainly none as stylish as that. I'd make something like that for myself but the truth is, I have to wear mine all the time, so there's very little need to have a place to put them :(

  3. Lovely - and there is a lot of potential in it! Make more Damjana!
    Have a nice Sunday! Yael.
