Luxurious sustainable eyewear from Gold & Wood

Gold & Wood sunglasses are the ultimate in eco eyewear. Sustainable, almost 100% biodegradable, and with a luxurious finish, the Gold & Wood Star model is crafted entirely out of all-natural products – namely wood.

Exotic woods from different African countries as well as Brazil and Canada are used for the Gold & Wood Star sunglasses. Other models from Gold & Wood use genuine buffalo horn, but the animal isn’t hurt. The horn is actually a by-product of cattle-farming, and it does grow back! The sunglasses are handmade, it takes 3 days to manufacture a pair of temples and the glasses go through almost 20 production steps that includes a multi-layered wood lamination process, which may explain the brand’s higher prices.
