Acrylic, metal, plastic…we expect to see our sunglasses made from these types of materials. But wood? Until very recently, this natural material was the last thing we considered for sunglasses frames. As it turns out, though, real wood and woodgrain tones make for a pretty cool pair of shades. Similar to tortoise, wooden frames often display a spectrum of colors, making them very complementary to a wide range of skintones. And if your taste tends more toward fashion-forward and eco-friendly, choose the Proof Eyewear style below in one of the many bright, summery hues.
