Shwood’s Wooden Sunglasses

7 Oct


Just looking through Portland-based company Shwood‘s new collection gives me wood! As their website states, “Shwood is handcrafted eyewear created with the intent of individuality and uniqueness that can only be found in natural surroundings.” And, yep, you guessed it, Shwood use wood. Their in-house manufacturing process merges precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship. Every step from veneering and precision ply cutting, to shaping and finishing is conducted in their workshop to promise an entirely handcrafted eyewear piece. Wood manipulation is kept to a minimum in order to maintain the natural aesthetic. All models are accompanied by 100% UVA/UVB protection Carl Zeiss lenses imported from Italy. Oh yeah, and Polarized lenses are also available. Their debut model, the Canby, was inspired by James Dean and lays lays the groundwork for an entire wood revolution.
