To say that Shwood comes from humble beginnings would be an understatement. The company’s first pair of sunglasses was whittled by hand from the limb of a madrone tree. They were fitted with lenses purchased from a corner store, and finished with a set of rusty hinges from an old cabinet. That was 2009. Today, Shwood has replaced the pocket knife with a laser cutter. The lenses, though they’re still ground to spec in-house, hail from German manufacturer Carl Zeiss. And the home office? It’s still in Portland, Oregon, but it’s no longer a literal home. Some things never change, though. Like that first pair of Shwood shades, each pair today is made in Portland with the goal of showcasing the natural beauty of the materials.
Note: At checkout, choose amber, dark walnut, tortoise and maple burl, walnut, or zebrawood.
Featuring a rounded silhouette and a keyhole bridge, the Francis is at once classic and contemporary. It comes in different material combinations—all wood or acetate with wood inlays—and works well on square, oval, rectangle, diamond, and heart face shapes. To keep your sunglasses looking their best, you'll also get a travel case and a microfiber cleaning cloth.
