.....fashion with roots

..... hout couture has arrived!  
so excited that these cool bamboo wayfarers sunnies will be in store from tomorrow! 
Skilled workmanship of the wooden frames ensures that they are a breathable, lightweight and durable alternative to plastic (not to mention friendlier to the earth). Polarized lenses come standard. For each pair of wooden sunglasses sold, an indigenous or fruit tree will be planted through Eco-Schools projects in South Africa.
