Portland-based Shwood makes entirely handcrafted eyewear that is unique, beautiful and stylish. They bill themselves as “a simple experiment with nature”. Shwood employs minimal wood manipulation to showcase the medium’s natural and unique splendor.
Of the many options offered by Shwood, we loved the Pendleton frames, made of Oregon-grown Cherry wood. The frames are made by Shwood’s exacting standards, and feature a custom laser cut and a wool storage pouch with leather drawstrings and limited edition label.
These sunglasses include 100% UVA/UVB protection Carl Zeiss lenses imported from Italy.
Cost is $210.
