Shwood Zebrawood Canby SunglassesPortland's Shwood offers a more eco-friendly alternative to typical sunglasses with its hand-crafted wooden shades.

It might seem counter-intuitive for green fashion lovers to wear shades made from harvested trees, but Shwood ensures us its practices are eco-friendly. It uses sustainable woods, including walnut, cherry, East Indian rosewood, and zebrawood, grown in authorized plantations. Shwood takes a light touch with its wood to showcase its organic beauty. By using a natural product and stepping away from the factories, Shwood minimizes its carbon footprint.

You might assume that wooden sunglasses might be more difficult to care for than traditional plastic or metal frames, but the fuss is pretty minimal. Shwood coats its frames with beeswax, which helps them retain moisture. If your glasses start to feel dry you can simply add more beeswax to keep the frames looking and feeling their best.

Shwood pairs its wooden frames with 100% UVA/UVB protective lenses imported from Italy. Polarized lenses are also available for all styles, including Schwood's pictured flagship wayfarer model, the Canby.

Shwood's wooden sunglasses are available from selected retailers around the world and the label's online store from $98. Can you imagine wearing a pair of wooden sunglasses on the beach this summer?
