Skateboard Shades

It’s summer time and although we don’t have that much sun in Berlin right now, I beat about for some new sunglasses. What I found are those new Skateboard Shades by Eric Singer from Portland-based Shwood Eyewear…

Crafted entirely in Shwood’s local woodshop, this one-of-a-kind pair of sunglasses was created out of curiosity, just to see what was possible.

For his latest project, Eric met up with Keith Hufnagel and others to claim the streets of Los Angeles in pursuit of destroying some skateboard decks. The reason: He creates sunglasses made from broken skateboard decks!

I really would like to have such stylish, recycled skateboard glasses and hope they are going to produce them. Nevertheless I will definitely try to create those glasses myself – If someone has some tips and tricks, let me know!
