It takes a lot for a pair of shades to grab our attention, but Treed Eyewear simply couldn’t be overlooked. Treed is an authentic brand of made-to-order sunglasses made out of the finest exotic woods, fully manufactured in Egypt.

But, naturally, we asked ourselves, why would we buy a pair of heavy wooden glasses no matter how awesome they looked?

We were pleasantly surprised to find out that Treed glasses are created using cross grain lamination technology which result in very light – but very durable – frames weighing only 20 grams. The glasses are also treated against water, dust, and weather conditions through the use of natural oils that preserve the wood’s natural lustre through the years. The manufacturing process of these unique shades is 100% eco-friendly.

For those of you who are not too fond of shades, Treed also sell eyeglasses. All their Eyewear comes with a two-year warranty period, and, most importantly, you can customise your glasses by sculpting any design or writing of your choosing on the sides of the frame.

If you want your shades to stand out in a crowd, check out their Facebook page or visit their gallery at 26 Tag El-Din El-Sobky street, Heliopolis.
