Portland eyewear company Shwood has developed these sleek frames as a part of their recent Newspaper Collection, which is exactly what it sounds like; the designers are experimenting with the incorporation of recycled newspaper as a an eco-friendly and innovative new material in commercial products. This entails compressing the recycled sheets into newspaper “logs,” which results in a fine and swirling wood-like grain entirely unique to each pair of shades or readers. A solid newspaper frame is combined with elegant wooden arms and accented by newspaper temple inlays to complete these hand-crafted gems. Find them here in five simple yet classic silhouettes that make them the perfect addition to practically any look or lifestyle. Shwood’s fresh approach is a continuation of the exploratory design process that defines the brand, like these sunglasses made from broken skateboards or these made from Mercedes-Benz dashboards. We’ll be waiting with anticipation to see what comes next.
