Most notable for their wooden frames, Shwood have decided to take things a step further by staying with their natural theme but featuring stone frames, instead of wood for their new and bold collection.
The Oregon based label have infused timeless styles with precision technology and highly skilled craftsmanship. They’ve also updated already well known designs such as the Belmont, which features a quirky keyhole bridge and the Canby with the stone designs.
For the collection, the label had to enlist the help of a German engineering firm to combine millimetre-thick slices of stone to make the frames. Each pair is handmade in their Portland, Oregon workshop accompanied by 100% UVA/UVB protection Carl Zeiss lenses imported from Italy.
