Eyewear that's straight from the forest
Plastics are among the past century's greatest inventions. Durable, cheap and easy to manufacture, plastics make consumer culture possible.
Which is why everyone wants stuff made out of wood!
In that spirit, we're proud to introduce the Shwood (guys, did Sean Connery name your company? C'mon!) line of wood sunglasses!
Like everything most New Yorkers need to own, Shwood's eyewear is handcrafted and made from sustainable materials.
Constructed from cherry, East Indian rosewood and zebrawood, these glasses provide legit 100 percent UV protection (from Italian-imported lenses) while looking 1,000 percent badass.
If you're worried about a termite infestation, fret not — the hinges are stainless steel, meaning regardless of woodworking insects, the glasses won't fall apart on your head.
Of course, you could just get a pair of plastic ones, but that would be so last century.
