Winner of Dell's 2011 America's Favorite Small Business Contest, Shwood is also one of our favorite small businesses. This vibrant young company, launched in 2009, handcrafts sunglass frames from sustainably harvested, natural woods found in Northwest forests. Like Pendleton, Shwood focuses on its roots (in their case a bit more literally) and on quality. These splendid, beautifully carved wooden frames hold 100% UVA/UB protection Carl Zeiss lenses imported from Italy. We're pleased to accompany these Oregon-grown, cherry wood framed glasses with a jacquard storage pouch made of wool woven in our own Northwest mill. Look sharp. Check out a video
showing how the Shwood glasses are made.
