Wood Eyewear is a huge trend and every year in April we update our list of Wood Eyewear companies. When we first started it was about 15  companies and as you can see the list has grown. This does not include the occasional wood sunglass from designers such as Louie Vuitton, Anne Et Valentin (limited Edition)

Many of the wood companies offer bamboo and another growing trend is the recycled Skate Deck Eyewear.

Please Note These are not all the companies:
