WOODEN SUNGLASSES

 

 

THE LENSES

Our first concern is the quality of our material. We carefully choose the lumber we use and we refine it by hand. Of course, the final product will serve its user for a long time. With this in mind, our sunlenses offer 100% UVA/UVB sun protection and are produced by CARL ZEISS VISION SUNLENS. Another important feature that we managed to incorporate into our designs is that our lenses are replaceable.
In the case that you would like your optician to replace your lenses or even add your prescription lenses, please ask him/her to contact us first, for technical information at support@zyloeyewear.com.

 

YOUR AUTHENTIC ZYLO GLASSES

Every pair of sunglasses is accompanied by a 5ml aluminium tin, filled with beeswax and olive oil salve. This natural mixture is handmade by us and it consists of 100% white bee’s wax and extra virgin olive oil.

During the final stages of crafting a pair of sunglasses, every model is covered with a thin coat of this salve. This procedure makes the frame water-repellent and lightens up the wooden grain, providing a semi-gloss finish. Since wood is a living entity, from time to time it is needs your care. Take care of your sunglasses by following the instructions on the brochure included with your purchase after periods of overuse.
Please note that Zylo is all about the in-house manufacturing process, so full commitment is given to each pair. For this reason, the processing time needed for each order is 5-7 working days.

 

THE WOOD

wʊd | WOOD [noun] The hard fibrous material that forms the main substance of a tree or shrub. Often cut and used as timber or fuel.

This is a plain description. Reality is, of course, much bigger than just a few words put together. That’s because the material is alive. It has an odour. It breathes and ages with you, as does everything around us in this world. These are facts that the Mediterranean people understand because they are surrounded by nature and live at a different pace with her. We wanted to dismiss plain descriptions found in books that may distract us from the living material.

We use woods such as  rosewood, walnut, maple, eucalyptus, vavona,  oak and modenia. With the combinations and designs we create, we want to satisfy most of the aesthetic demands of those interested in our sunglasses. That’s because we believe that wooden eyewear is not a luxury item, but an artifact that comes from good technique, attention to detail, and care for the material and the final outcome. And this is something that everyone should be able to enjoy.
