With a pair of softly sanded wooden frames on your nose the summer sun feels even nicer. Nicer still knowing that each one is made by hand in Capital eyewear’s San Francisco shop from sustainable hardwoods like cherry and walnut sourced locally. They also have a pair made from a plant based acetate that looks smooth and means what you are wearing isn’t seeping chemicals into your pores.
There are a few different styles for both men and women that run the range in styles taking inspiration from different screen icons like Evelyn Marsh of “Twin Peaks” to Gregory Peck of “To Kill A Mocking Bird”. Each piece is cut and formed using lasers and bandsaws then sanding things down just right. Lenses are from the premier lens maker Carl Zeiss and are cut in the shop.
