WOODEN SUNGLASSES

Accessories made of wood are a huge trend this summer. I already see them a lot on festivals, but also on regular days. Today I see my life through wooden sunglasses. I think they have something special, because you will never find two identical wooden sunglasses!



First of all I would like to share a fun fact with you about sunglasses. We all wear sunglasses nowadays, but since when did we start wearing them? The origins of sunglasses dates back to the 12th century where Chinese people tried to hide their facial expressions in court by placing red quartz pieces before their eyes. But the real breakthrough of the sunglasses took place during the 20th century, when actors started wearing sunglasses to protect their eyes against the bright studio lights on film sets. From that moment we can not imagine a summer without sunglasses, at least I can't!

So we wear sunglasses because they look great and fashionable. My sunglasses are handmade and like I said, made of real wood and therefore completely unique. You will never find two identical wooden sunglasses! I think these sunglasses are perfect, they seriously go with everything!

Besides the fact that we wear sunglasses to finish off our summery look. It is a must to protect your eyes when the sun is shining. These sunglasses have polarized glasses and provide UV400 protection, which is really great.

I got my sunglasses from vanHout. They have a great collection of wooden sunglasses made of different kinds of wood. I am pretty sure there will be a pair of sunglasses that fit you perfectly. They also have really cool other wooden accessories like phone cases and ribbons, so definitely check this shop out!
