It’s mid-March and the winter months will soon be a distant memory. Many of us will be turning to thoughts of vacations… and if you’re anything like us, a vital part of our vacation attire is a pair of shades. But why opt for any shades when you can have a totally unique pair made by Wooed By Wood?
As the name suggests, the sunglasses are made from… you guessed it – wood. Not just any wood, but reclaimed wood sustainably harvested and hand-crafted into something really special. We learned it takes nearly two weeks and 50 different processes to make one pair.
Some of the stunning choices include frames made from Bamboo, Cocobolo, Zebrawood, and Walnut, which really do look the part. But as Julia from the company states, “Mother Nature was the real designer, all we did was to lend a helping hand.” In essence, they’re the ideal gift for someone who cares about the environment but wants to look and feel fabulous.
As well as making you look good, they’re extremely practical. With polarized lenses and spring hinges for better fitting, they’re made to last. With prices starting at $80, they make a stunning gift for someone special.
Joh (pronounced Joe) and Julia’s love for wood runs deep. “Some of the oldest living things on our planet are trees and our reliance on wood is as important today as it was thousands of years ago,” says Joh. “All we’re doing is bringing it back to life in a way that is practical, yet beautiful at the same time.”
Julia and Joh are about as passionate about the environment as you can be and this is reflected in the quality of their materials and the time and effort spent making their inspiring products.
