Round wooden sunglasses from Shadeshares
These round wooden sunglasses a la Gucci style don’t go unnoticed! The yellow lenses are quirky and fun. Additionally the relaxed and cool attitude works for sunny days at the beach as well for strolling the outdoor terraces in the city.
These sunglasses are a special edition designed by Finnish designer Paola Suhonen, who is the designer behind Ivana Helsinki.
The 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 natural wooden 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.
