Introducing a very special, limited-edition batch of Dresden frames made out of money.
Introducing a very special, limited-edition batch of Dresden frames made out of money. Yes, cold, hard, recycled cash: Australian banknotes given a new outlook as a pair of Dresdens!
We’ve magicked up these world-first frames from the misprints, leftovers and wastage from Australian banknote manufacturing. Just like Aussie banknotes, Dresdens are made from ultra-durable plastic with homegrown technology and skills.
We’re fighters in the #WarOnWaste and we take product stewardship seriously. We manufacture all our frames, so we choose exactly how they’re made, and with what materials. We already have a zero-waste, closed-loop system for our frame production, and we love finding funky ways to give new life to waste materials while manufacturing even more sustainably.
We’ve made these money frames from offcuts and misprints in a mixture of denominations – $5, $10, $20, $50 and $100. They’ve been greyed out for security, melted down and pelletised ready for moulding. So it turns out greeny-grey is the colour of money. 😉
Available in prescription glasses and sunglasses (from $49) and prescription sunglasses (from $69) – hurry, hurry, hurry, these crazy prices can’t last! Well, actually, they can: they might be made from hundreds of dollars, but we still offer them the same price as all Dresden frames.
