What makes EarthShade a good pair of wooden sunglasses? Well, we are happy you asked. First of all, let's take a look at what is used used in typical "wood" sunglasses. The most basic and cheap to make are made from bamboo which technically is not wood. These sunglasses are made very cheaply and most times do not have a Polarized lens. Our wood framed sunglasses are handmade from layered hardwoods such as Walnut ,Rosewood, Zebra wood and more.. The layering process is more complicated but not only makes for a stronger pair of glasses, but a nicer looking one by far. We also use high quality spring hinges that expand and fit on many different sized faces. And last but not least, we use certified Polarized lenses which keep you eyes safe from dangerous UVB rays from the sun. Sure, these glasses cost more, but if you look at the details, they are worth the investment. We are sure once you own a pair, it wlll be clear there is a huge difference in terms of quality and beauty vs the same old Bamboo styles out there. A big reason people like Wood Sunglasses is not only do they look nice, but they are lightweight and can be worn for long periods of time without hurting your nose! Have a look at our pics and videos and see for yourself the difference..
