Shwood   Salvaged Series: 100 Year Old Barn Wood Eyewear Collection

In their own way, Shwood has a healthy respect for history, continuing their Salvaged Series with this latest find. Found with the help of Aurora Mills Architectural Salvage, the two companies have scoured the Oregon countryside to re-purpose and reclaim unique materials that Shwood could then take to fashion into sunglasses. Their big find is a Salem-based barn whose history goes all the way back to 1910, which Shwood used for their first release. Limited to 50 individually numbered pairs, the specs were created by reclaimed redwood for the frames that boast so much character through each groove, vein, and blemish defined from their generations of facing the elements. Each pair comes with an oakwood interior for a classic two-tone aesthetic, premium polarized lenses, and a premium box case for safe keeping. For more on how these were found, made, and how you can purchase, click the video after the jump or head to their online store.
