You don’t have to be a hippie to believe that nature is beautiful. Take natural wood for example; it is detailed, textured, and warm. Because of the inherent variations in the grain, each item constructed out of wood is unique. These properties are what makes Shwood Wood Sunglasses so special. Instead of the typical plastic frames on most sunglasses, Shwood’s are constructed of real wood for a unique and natural look. They’ll make you stand out from the crowd, but still appear warm and friendly.
Constructed in-house by skilled craftsman in Portland, Oregon, all Shwood sunglasses are handcrafted in the USA. Choose between a variety of different shapes and styles such as the Canby (pictured on top), as well as the Haystack, Ashland, Govy, Florence, and Belmont. After selecting your frame style, choose the wood/finish such as zebrawood, oak, walnut and oak, or dark walnut. They even have sunglasses made from combinations of exotic hardwoods like East Indian Rosewood, Maple Burl, Santos Mahogany, and Amboyna Burl. The lenses are Carl Zeiss lenses imported from Italy, and they offer 100% UVA/UVB protection.
Shwood’s in-house manufacturing process merges precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship to create a timeless art form. Every step from veneering and precision lens cutting, to shaping and finishing is conducted in our own Portland-based workshop to promise an entirely handcrafted piece of wooden eyewear. Wood manipulation is kept to a minimum in order to showcase the medium’s natural and unique splendor. All models are accompanied by 100% UVA/UVB protection Carl Zeiss lenses imported from Italy. Polarized lenses are also available.
