The versatility of denim is unmatched in the clothing world. Now, you can even put it on your face.

Start-up Mosevic has introduced sunglasses made with denim fabric. The company combines denim with resin similar to that used in fiberglass construction.

The sunglasses are handmade in Cornwall, England, and they come equipped with Carl Zeiss lenses.

A bit on how they are made: Fiberglass is created by coating sheets of fiber with a liquid resin that hardens when mixed with a catalyst. These sunglasses simply replaces the fiberglass material with denim. Voila!

The company has three styles available, all of which sell for about $125. It has raised about $4,000 of a $7,577 goal on Kickstarter.
