Schwood frames are composed of cherry and zebra wood.  These frames are handcrafted for a unique finish. Schwood tries to keep the natural essence of the wood by preserving the frame. Schwood comes in many designs such as aviators, wayfarers, and round frames.

Woodwear is fashioned from sustainable bamboo. Bamboo regenerates at a faster rate which makes it more sustainable than hardwood.  Bamboo is also moisture resistant meaning that the frames will last longer. Based in California, they hope to breed off the culture of the skating and surfing community who purport to be in touch with the natural environment.
