What are our frames made of? Chapter Two: Wood.

Our wooden glasses frames offer a unique blend of style, sustainability, and craftsmanship. Here are some noteworthy aspects:

  1. Materials: Crafted from luxurious domestic hardwoods, wooden frames exude natural beauty. They’re made from sustainably sourced wood like oak, walnut and rosewood. All with FSC certificate.


    Compared to other types of hardwood, oak wood is the most resistant to weather conditions, which is why its properties have been sought after for years. A unique feature of oak wood is its reaction to moisture and water due to its durability. Due to the closed-cell structure, Oakwood withstands the alternation of humidity and dryness. The most important properties of oak wood are strength, adequate hardness, and, of course, durability, which has always been an important criterion.


    Walnut wood is firm, hard (only slightly softer than oak wood), but at the same time flexible, well-shaped, and considered very valuable. The color of the wood has the privilege of multicolored drawing - a white-gray color with yellow spots in the white, while the core is dark brown to dark red and markedly separated from the white.


    The exceptional color range is the motto of rosewood - the color varies depending on the subspecies. It changes from brown-orange through red-brown with subtle purple undertones to deep red.

  2. Comfort and Lightweight: Wooden frames are surprisingly lightweight, making them comfortable for extended wear. The natural warmth of wood against your skin adds to the overall comfort. The arms endings are made of bio-acetate to ensure more durability and resitance to oily marks.

  3. Eco-Friendly: Unlike plastic or metal frames, wooden frames have a smaller environmental footprint. They’re biodegradable and contribute to a greener planet.

  4. Unique Grain Patterns: The natural grain patterns of wood create a distinctive look. Whether it’s a subtle grain or a bold pattern, wooden frames stand out.


The Natural Element of Wood

Wood carries a sense of warmth, comfort, and grounding. Here’s how it impacts your well-being:

  1. Calming Influence: The texture and grain of wood have a soothing effect on the mind and body. Whether it’s the touch of the frame against your temples or the visual appeal, wood promotes relaxation. It’s like a mini-vacation for your senses.

  2. Nature’s Connection: Wearing wooden frames connects you to the natural world. It’s like carrying a piece of the forest with you—a subtle reminder of the outdoors. Embrace the beauty of nature every time you put on your glasses.


Whether you’re eco-conscious, appreciate natural aesthetics, or simply want a distinctive pair of glasses, wooden frames are an excellent choice. They’re a testament to the fusion of nature and style.
