Most eye wear frames are made out of alien sounding names like zyl, monel and flexon.
To be honest I tend to flock to a product that is made out of a natural material that I can relate to and understand, let alone pronounce!
We found some bamboo ones a while back that we liked but I was somewhat dismayed by the lack of styles offered. I had to buy some plastic Ray Bans recently (Yes I am a Ray Ban junkie) for a shoot and now that I have them I almost want to send them back because I finally found some sunglasses that are wicked cool and super eco friendly. Welcome to iWood (I totally would)… For one, the sunglasses are made of wood ok? Wood!! I had thought of this but I never could find anything. There is all kinds of different types of wood too like teak, sapele pommele, bubinga, ebony and zebrawood veneers. The Italian lenses have 100% UVA/UVB protection. All iWood ecodesign wooden sunglasses can be fitted with prescription lenses and their products are all made in the USA!
iWood offers frames in various shapes and sizes that boast many kinds of looks so there is something for everyone. Whatever style you want they probably have it, mod, elegant, hipster, slick, sporty, serious and nerdy.
And if that dude on the ski hill(the guy in full neon garb, a zinc nose and gunmetal bendable wraparound thingamajigs) makes fun of you, just smile and ski away cause you know that guy is missing that cool wood flavour.
