Iwood Ecodesign


Unique: Iwood Ecodesign has carved its niche in the designer sunglasses realm by handcrafting flawless wood frames cut from reclaimed exotic woods. Each pair of sunglasses is meticulously sanded by hand and assembled with optical-quality lenses and imported Italian temples. Feather-light and perfectly balanced, they look and fit like no other eyewear.

Sustainable:  Our frames are lovingly hand crafted from reclaimed woods used to decorate the interiors of private luxury jets. They are certified and harvested by sustainable methods. The glue and protective coating used in final assemblage are formaldehyde free and emit no VOCs.

Made in America:  Headquarters is based in Louisville, Kentucky and all pieces are made domestically in the Midwest. Our optical-quality lenses, made by Carl Zeiss, offer 100% UVA/UVB protection. Polarized lenses are available upon request.

History:  Iwood’s collection of designer sunglasses is the ideal union of fashion and function.  President and CEO Stephen McMenamin recognized the inconsistent fit of his many pairs of plastic designer sunglasses. He found it frustrating that even subtle differences in temperature and humidity could drastically affect the way a pair fit on a given day. Even his cherished leather RayBans irked him as he could only wear them for 20 minutes at a time due to their weight and the subsequent pressure on his face. We all know that sometimes “beauty is pain”, but Stephen was convinced that the perfect pair of sunglasses could exist. After 20 years in sales and design at luxury goods makers such as Lacoste, Cross Pens, Hickey Freeman, and Porsche Design, he finally had the opportunity to bring his perfect pair to fruition. Thus, iWood’s perfectly balanced, surprisingly lightweight wood sunglasses collection was born.

Fashion Forward: Our current collection is inspired by classics frame designs as well as those popularized by today’s celebrities and fashion icons. Our sunglasses have been featured in over 90 fashion and luxury goods magazines across the world.

Commitment: Our promise to you is that you will be 100% satisfied with the products you purchase from our company. Each piece is wearable art that is lovingly made to ensure that you feel glamorous and unique.
