Q: What kind of lenses come with your sunglasses?

A: All current Wood Worn sunglasses come with Polarized TAC lenses that are rated UV400. They offer superior visual and polarization clarity. They are hard coated to resist scratching and block out 100% of all harmful UV rays (UVA & UVB) up to 400 nanometers, and are also lightweight and highly impact resistant.

Q: What is a Polarized lens?

A: A Polarized lens is infused with a polarized filter that cuts down on glare. The glare can come from water, a car hood, a car windshield, snow, or well you get the idea. Polarized lenses will cut down on glare (reflective and atmospheric) to provide clearer visual acuity and less eyestrain. 

Q: Why did you decide to use wood to make sunglasses?

A: There are many reasons but here are the top benefits:

Because the glasses are made out of wood they are on average over 30% lighter than their plastic and metal counterparts. This is because wood is porous and plastic/metal are not. This allows one to wear the glasses for longer stretches of time because they are not as heavy on your face.
Wood construction is strong. The entire frame and temples are made up of multiple layers of very thin hardwood. The layers are laid up in a cross-grain pattern much like how a skateboard is constructed. Think of it as little rebar, you lay one set of rebar one direction and then the other set the other direction. This allows for the greatest strength and flexibility in all directions. The result is an extremely strong and lightweight frame that is stronger than a single piece of solid wood by itself, which is why we don’t just simply carve each pair out of a single larger piece of wood. Wood Worn sunglasses are made up from 5-7 separate hardwood layers.

Now, we mentioned that wood is porous and so these have been sealed to make them waterproof and in fact many actually float. That being said, one should try to keep them dry when possible or dry off when they get wet and be sure to rinse with fresh water if they come into contact with saltwater. Also, wood densities and buoyancy will differ pair to pair so we cannot guarantee each pair will float. Please Note: prolonged submersion of glasses may cause them to warp.

Wood glasses leave a smaller carbon footprint to produce than traditional mass manufacturing processes. 
Quite possibly the best reason: Due to the inherent properties of wood and the nature of handmade items, no two pairs are the same. A fashion accessory as unique as you.
Q: Where do you get your wood from?

A: All Wood Worn wood is sourced from sustainable, responsible, and authorized plantations from all over the world. The current woods we use are black walnut, zebrawood, and red rosewood.

Q: How do I care for my Wood Worn Sunglasses?

A: Wood Worn Sunglasses quite honestly require very little care as long as they are treated properly from the get-go. We use a blend of waxes and oils to seal and waterproof the wooden frames. That being said, do not leave them in extreme heat or cold for prolonged periods of time, do not store them in your pocket, backpack, or hanging from your shirt when not in use. When not in use, keep them in a safe place and preferably a hard case. We recommend the microfiber bag and hard magnetic box they come in. If your frames start to feel dry you may use a thin coating of lip balm, beeswax, or butcher block conditioner.
