Born from the limb / Shwood eyeware

One could say that using exotic woods is not very ecological, but the craftsmanship is quite interesting. I guess they also need the density for a proper resistance. They are hand/machine made locally in Portland, except for the lenses that are from Italy. I'm about to grab a pair just to analyze the assembly and construction, out of curiosity.

 

Collection and more infos here.
