The Pacific Northwest was not always a part of the country that received its share of the limelight. In the old days, if you weren’t in the timber or aerospace industries, you probably didn’t have all that much to do with the Northwest. That’s all changed in the past two decades; between grunge, Twin Peaks, and Portland, Oregon’s rise to alternative culture prominence, the Northwest is where a lot of things are happening first.
Shwood glasses manage to combine all these elements, and the end product is sleek yet classic eyewear that is entirely handcrafted in Shwood’s Portland based workshop. The Fifty/Fifty is a collaboration with outdoor fixture, and fellow Northwesterners, Pendleton. A signature Pendleton pattern is incorporated directly into the acetate.
