As someone who has worn glasses for over twenty years, I’m particular about the kinds of glasses that I would wear. While walking the tradeshows in Vegas, I came across several brands that presented glasses made from wood but one brand stood out from the rest – Shwood.
Shwood is a Portland-based company that started producing wood glasses in 2009. Their styles are simple and finishes are kept minimal so that the natural beauty of the wood is the primary focus. Styles come in various wood options including Cherry Mexican Rosewood, East Indian Rosewood, Walnut and Maple. What I like about Shwood is that the brand has an authenticity to it that I felt the other offerings at the trade show lacked. Other brands offered wood among other options and it came across as a gimmick. With Shwood it came across as an appreciation for natural beauty.
