Shwood, the new Portland label making classic frames out of wood, recently launched their latest model, the Govy (pictured above). Refining the retro looks of the Canby (below), their first pair, this new edition has a lighter, slimmer silhouette and comes in zebrawood.
The Canby, which debuted in July 2009, is available in zebrawood, maple or wenge (a dark tropical hardwood).
Each sustainable, handmade frame features 100% Carl Zeiss Italian lenses and sells for $95, while the polarized models go for $115. You can order online at Shwood .
