The Eugene Marquetry

Emphasis On Traditional Craftsmanship by Shwood

Winter might be slowly making its way to a city near you, but unless we’re due for a prolonged blizzard, you can be sure the sun will still peak through the clouds. If there’s one style of sunglasses that never go out of style, it’s the Aviator, an iconic design which pairs well with just about any ensemble you decide to put together. But, no matter the season, having a pair of shades will always come in handy, and more so if you’re planning on visiting a sunny side resort. In this day and age, options are limitless, and these wood frames are fine pick to block out our closest star.

Shwood Eugene Marquetry Small 1

Originating during the 16th century, marquetry is one of the most precise wood working techniques still in practice today. Paying homage to these famous woodworkers of the past, Shwood applies the artisanal technique to one of its most classic frame shapes, the Eugene, resulting in a next-level handmade product with a subtle interior touch. The Eugene Marquetry features hand-cut walnut and maple veneers meticulously inlayed to the interior of the frame and temples in a striking triangular formation. The frame is paired with a gold-plated rim and Japanese polarized optics for 100% UVA-UVB protection. With a timeless low wrap fit, the Eugene Marquetry looks best on oval, round and heart face shapes.
