Frame your face with wooden eyewear made with pedal power and salvaged wood

I don’t know if it’s too far of a stretch to call these glasses artisanal, but either way, the handmade wooden frames made by Featherwood for both sun- and eyeglasses, are a beautiful and low-carbon way of making your eyewear more sustainable.

“Both the frames and lenses are manufactured using Pedal-Powered machinery that was designed and built in our workshop. All finishing is done by hand. After the basic frame is cut, various hand tools are employed to bring each pair of glasses to completion. In total each pair embodies approximately 2 miles of full speed ahead bike-generated energy.” – Featherwood Frames
