When you borrow a couple eggs from a neighbor you should repay them with a dozen. The old adage rings true across all areas of life. We believe wholly in this spirit of giving back and that is why for every pair of glasses that we sell a tree is planted through OneTreePlanted.org.

We are only able to craft our wood frame sunglasses thanks to God’s wonderful gift of trees and all they provide to our earth.  A typical mature hardwood tree has enough material for us to create more sunglasses than we will likely ever produce, however we know how imperative trees are to our world and want to do our part to create a cycle of sustainability.

The benefits trees provide to the world are countless and so often are taken for granted. They clean air, prevent soil erosion, absorb carbon dioxide while releasing oxygen, grow food and provide wood for building, crafting and fuel. Without trees there is no life. Therefore, it’s imperative that we do our part to live sustainable lives and give back what we take.

We chose to partner with One Tree Planted because of their dedication to creating an easy solution for businesses, schools and citizens to have an impact through planting trees. Operating since 2014, the organization is planting and committed to reforestation across the globe. We know that our customers believe in a better world and we wanted to create a seamless, universally beneficial way to donate on their behalf. One Tree Planted is the perfect partner for this mission. All our customers need to do is purchase a pair of glasses, and that tree is automatically planted.

Our wood frames are hand crafted utilizing four premium hardwoods: cherry, mahogany, maple and walnut. We offer six frame variants and each pair two of the four wood types. Designed in the eternally epic and universally beloved wayfarer style, our wood Model Makers are captivating for any wearer.

Meticulously crafted, they are lightweight, elegant and strong. We cross grain stack wood to 15 plies and secure them together with 20 tons of pressure. The result is an easily recognizable, high-quality product that is sure to turn heads.

We know there are a lot of options on the market available for sunglasses. We take care to ensure that ours have both distinct and subtle refinements. Ours stand out from the rest in value and beauty due to the high level of craftsmanship that goes into every pair.

We are eternally grateful to our customers for helping us to continue to grow our brand and joining us in our commitment to giving back to the earth.
