About the Designer
Founded in 2009, Shwood was born from the limb of a Madrone tree, a rusty pair of cabinet hinges, and lenses from the corner store. The goal was simple—create a product that encompasses the individuality and uniqueness that can only be found in natural surroundings. Equipped with nothing more than rudimentary hand tools and a desire to be different, the manufacturing process was completely engineered from the ground up. Constant experimentation with tools, materials, and design and has resulted in an array of one-of-kind techniques that continues to evolve daily. Experimentation with new materials is at the heart of what we do. From our original wood frames to stabilized seashells and oxidized metals, Shwood has pioneered over 15 new materials in the eyewear industry.
