With many designers embracing environmentally friendly production practices, we no longer have to sacrifice style in the name of practicality. Among my favorite environmentally friendly accessories, none have excited me as much as Portland-based sunglasses company Shwood Eyewear.
Schwood Eyewear, for both men and women, features finely handcrafted wood eyewear created with the finest exotic woods like East Indian Rosewood, or Zebrawood that are sustainably-harvested, sourced from authorized and supervised plantations in different African countries. Each pair made of wayfarer styled Shwood sunglasses comes complete with a choice imported Carl Zeiss or polarized lenseswith 100% UVA/UVB ray protection.
You’ll definitely be part of the trendsetting crowd as an early adapter of the Shwood culture. Choose from two styles, the Govy and the Canaby, with the main difference being the shape of the temple that attaches to the frame. I love that Shwood sunglasses are made of a naturally abundant resource: wood. The sunglasses retail for $95 and are available at http://shop.shwoodshop.com.
