Vision Quest | Shwood: Made From The Ocean

Shwood is all about premium, hand-crafted sunglasses made from sustainable materials, with advanced technology and attention to detail. While we’ve always been a fan of these impressive shades, there’s a whole new reason to become a customer.

The Stabilized Series No. 2 features a collection made from the ocean. But what does that mean? Sustainably sourced seashells were found, and put to amazing use by using high-pressure resin casting and a hand-made processing technique to take these elements and make them into man-made art.

The Sea Collection features four unique silhouettes, with versatile fits, that are sure to look good on any face. Plus who would mind the conversation starter that these frames are sure to be. If  you were wondering where the designers got their inspiration from, it was obviously the beautiful, and majestic ocean, and it was all captured in this amazing video.
