Skater Shades

In the pursuit of devising imaginative ways to craft sunglasses from sustainable wood, the brains behind Shwood have turned to broken skate decks in their newest experiment. Check out how they made these one-of-a-kind sunnies in their Portland workshop. So fresh!

    I know this is a late post but I’ve just written a wood sunglasses review site and it’s interesting to see where the industry is a few years down the line. In general wooden sunglasses are booming. Shwood is still more or less an industry leader with strong competition from Proof and others. There are literally hundreds of new startups in the last couple years, a notable one being Tree Tribe who plants 10 trees per item sold. Cheers.
