Vinylux products are created from recycled vintage record albums that are transformed into a variety of new designs. The original record labels are intact and represent some of the most popular music ever put on vinyl. They work with LPs, 45s, and vintage album covers to create personal, unique gifts that bring vinyl records back into your home. They can even use your own records to create the products specifically for you. All of their items are made in the spirit of re-purposing. They try to re-use, re-present, re-cycle, and re-imagine the materials that go into their products. Everything is made in their Philadelphia workshop.

While literally billions of LPs still exist in the world, most will soon become garbage. Vinylux harvests obsolete piles of records and gives new life to this neglected, but not forgotten, material. Over the past 5 years, they have recycled about 400,000 records - about 120,000 pounds of vinyl and cardboard. Leftover vinyl from coaster production is collected by a plastics recycler and re-processed. The non-usable album covers are recycled into chipboard. Vinylux is committed to using post-consumer materials whenever possible, as well as non-toxic printing inks and minimal packaging.

Designer and owner Jeff Davis graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002, with a Master's degree in Industrial Design. It was at RISD where Vinylux began, as part of a graduate thesis project. His work generally focuses on turning our familiar relationships with everyday objects into re-imagined experiences. Jeff has been making objects, furniture, and designing environments for over 15 years. He earned his BFA in theatrical set design from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU and has worked on numerous theater and television productions in New York. Jeff has also collaborated with several artists to produce sculptures and installations both in New York and abroad.

Vinylux also employs several young artists who skillfully craft each of their products with love and care.
