Shwood is a Portland, Oregon based company that hand makes these remarkable sunglasses from sustainably harvested African hardwoods. This pair, called the ‘Ashland in Zebrawood’, has high grade Carl Zeiss lenses with 100% UV protection, stainless steel hinges and a multi-ply wooden frame.
They come in a fantastic, reusable wooden box and are available here from Shwood.
