Woodie Eyewear

Woodie creates glasses with recycled wood and materials that can only be found in nature. While wood-frame sunglasses had a burst of popularity when they were first introduced, they’ve waxed and waned in popularity over the years. However, with a renewed interest in sustainable style and accessories, Woodie’s are very much back in fashion. In particular, we like the brand’s Urban frames, which have a classic-yet-modern aesthetic to go along with the sustainable materials.
