How durable are the wooden frames?


Wood is sturdy, lightweight and long-lasting, which is why we selected it for our Sunglasses by Tower material. They just sort of season over time. They don't degrade. We also glaze our wood in a wax finish that not only makes our sunglasses look beautiful, but adds yet another protective layer against harmful external conditions.

That being said, wood sunglasses are more about style than durability. Plastic sunglasses are much more unbreakable. The take away is don't sit on your pair of wood sunglasses to see if they can take it. They can't. Wood may be a beautiful and enduring material, but that doesn't mean wood sunglasses can't break.
