Hout Couture, a stylish wear company based in Cape Town, South Africa, offers a line of high quality shades made purely of wood which should be something dandy for the people seeking complimenting sunglasses to go with their overall ecofriendly fashion look.
The sunglasses come with a unique pattern of bumps, knots and grains – a testament that these shades were really made out of trees. The glasses should be something cool to have, said to be unique, simple and sleek that feature classy designs like the wayfarer, the cat eye and the ‘Ramsey’.
But the buck doesn’t stop there. With every pair sold, a tree will be planted via South Africa’s Eco-Schools project, giving back to where the materials came from and addressing the call to have more trees replaced when chopped down.
