Attention lovers of sunnies! There’s a new trend that’s making as much of a fashion statement as it is an environmentally friendly stand. Wooden sunglasses are shining bright in the fashion market, and from small companies to high fashion labels like Gucci, wooden eyewear is definitely on the up and up.
One of the most enticing aspects of wooden eyewear is the inherently unique nature of the items, which come from different trees and each have their own story. The sunglasses come in stylish shapes ranging from classic wayfarer styles to trendier frames that can be masculine, feminine or unisex. Many of these styles feature polarized lenses (some even imported from Europe) and are guaranteed to be authentic and natural.
My personal favorite wooden sunglasses come from Wooed in San Francisco, and the Vintage Pacific in Skateboard Red (a unisex wayfarer type icon) has been a staple in my day-to-day looks as of late. Wooed’s handcrafted styles are created with care in a tedious process to ensure that they are of the best quality possible. Wooed uses only reclaimed or sustainably harvested wood for its styles, and their finishing processes highlight the actual wood they are made from to preserve and enhance their history.
Wooed is inspired by nature and travel, which is certainly evident in the styles they craft. The wood materials range from zebrawood to bamboo to redwood and much more. Wooed has also very recently launched an Rx line for prescription eyeglasses, which are beautiful works of art, as well. Next on my wishlist? The Vintage Pacific in Redwood X Oak as well as Amber, since the frame flatters my small, round-shaped face. Whatever your personal style may be, there is frame to suit you both you and the environment with the newest trend in sunnies–wooden eyewear.
