Wooden sunglasses Twiga from Shadeshares
These classic wooden sunglasses flatter almost every face shape. They remind us of shapes worn by Audrey Hepburn in the early ´60s. The rounded D-frames pair well with smart tailoring and breezy summer dresses. The colour of these wooden sunglasses is called chestnut, but looks almost black.
A fun and practical fact is that these shades come in a foldable protective pouch, which can be folded completely flat, when the sunglasses are out. Additionally the shades are made of sustainable birch veneer. And last but not least, these cool shades are produced with love and care in a social project in Kenya: the SOS Childrens village in Nairobi.
Shadeshares designs and produces quality sunglasses made of Finnish birch veneer with polarized UV protection lenses. All of their sunglasses, down to every single detail, are made in SOS Children’s Village in Nairobi, Kenya. Their workshop is currently training and employing 20 young adults who come from the Kariobangi & Korogocho slums teaching them valuable working-life skills.
One of the core values of Shadeshares is to become a zero carbon footprint company. As a company they plant one tree for each Shadeshares sunglass pair sold. All sunglasses are made from environmentally sustainable materials, and the manufacturing chain is open and transparent. They know who works at their workshop and they make sure that they have proper working conditions.
