Shwood’s in-house manufacturing process merges precision technology with classic skilled craftsmanship to create a timeless art form. Every step from veneering and precision lens cutting, to shaping and finishing is conducted in their Portland-based workshop to promise an entirely handcrafted piece of wooden eyewear. Wood manipulation is kept to a minimum in order to showcase the medium’s natural and unique splendor.
The luxuriousness of exotic hardwoods
Since the beginning, the Canby has been Shwood’s flagship model, and for good reason. The classic wayfarer styling and refined aesthetics of the Canby lay the groundwork for an entire wooden eyewear revolution. The Canby Fifty/Fifty mixes timeless style with the luxuriousness of exotic hardwoods and premium acetate for a look that’s simple yet unforgettable.
“Style is an abstract notion which may be hard to define. But it should not be ignored at any cost. At Shwood, this understanding lies at the heart of every product we create. Each piece is crafted to be unique. It is a testament to our appreciation of the singularity of each individual’s own sense of style.”
The new Fifty/Fifty collection was designed to come along no matter where you end up. As comfortable running around town as hiking the backwoods, these glasses strike the perfect balance of style and utility. Each detail has been painstakingly considered to give you the highest level of quality.
The highest level of quality
Top-of-the-line Mazzucchelli acetate (a renewable, plant-based plastic) is paired with Optics by Carl Zeiss lenses. 5-barrel hinges provide a secure and lasting fit. And real wood inlays insure that each pair is as unique as the adventures you’ll have in them.
