Shades brand Shwood [1] teamed up with HUF [2] owner and professional skateboarder Keith Hufnagel to have some fun skating across the LA’s streets and making some cool sunglasses. Made from recycled broken skateboards [3], these stripy shades are unique and handmade at Shwood’s Portland workshop. By gluing the wooden pieces together and using a vacuum sealer instead of clamps, Shwood and HUF’s unique shades are too cool for school!
