Shwood 2015 Winter Eugene Marquetry

By Jay Casteel  |  11/10/2015

Eyewear brand Shwood returns with this limited edition frame for Winter 2015, called the Eugene Marquetry.

Originating during the 16th century, marquetry is one of the most precise wood working techniques still in practice today. Paying homage to these famous woodworkers of the past, Shwood applies the artisanal technique to its classic silhouette, the Eugene, resulting in a unique handmade edition.

The Eugene Marquetry features hand-cut walnut and maple veneers, which are meticulously inlayed to the interior of the frame and temples in a striking triangular formation. The frame is paired with a gold-plated rim and Japanese polarized optics for 100% UVA-UVB protection.

Limited to 200 pieces, the Eugene Marquetry is available now online for $250 USD.
