Shwood Sunglasses are Shweet !!!

Shwood is a Portland, Oregon based design company of these handmade, all-wood-framed shades-

Shwood currently gets its lumber shipped in from sustainably-harvested operations in Africa.

All styles are available with a selection of variously-tinted polarized lenses, which reduce glare…so basically this chopped down tree will still give shade !!!
