Sneak peak at 3 new shades arriving in this Spring!

This Spring, Westwood Sunglasses will be extending their selection of wooden sunglasses.  Below you'll find a sneakpeak at four new models set to arrive soon.

New Style #1: The wood frame is much more square than our Classic style.  New collection set to feature new woods in verawood (my new favorite) and duwood. 

New Style #2: This style has been requested heavily by the ladies. The new frame is much more round with bug or owl lenses. 

New Aviator: Our aviator style is designed for smaller heads and is set to feature new wood species in sandalwood and verawood.

These pairs will go on pre-order mid-February with a expected delivery date for the end of March or early April.

Tribal Collection: Tattoo

Tribal Collection: Tattoo
Wood: Ebony
Lenses: Smoke
Release Date on Kickstarter: June 1st, 2015

The Tattoo embodies the rich traditions of the Pacific islands found in tribal tattoos.  Made of ebony from Indonesia and dark polarized lenses, the frame style is designed as more dark and masculine than other styles in the Tribal Collection to bring to life the strength and courage of the culture.

Tribal Collection: Tapestry

Material: Rosewood
Lenses: Polarized Brown Lenses
Release Date on Kickstarter: June 1, 2015

Inspired by the textile arts of ancient Latin America, Tapestry brings flare to the Westwood Tribal Collection.  Designed near the arches and red rock of southern Utah, rosewood (safely harvested from Brazil) was chosen for its beautiful dark red coloring.  The handcrafted frame gives each pair a unique feel while the intricate designs are etched with modern machinery to deliver precision.  To complete the look, each frame comes with brown polarized lenses to protect your eyes from the desert sun. 


New Frames?

Let's just say this. We locked ourselves in a room for a long time and didn't come until we had the ultimate answer for our question; What is your next line of frames going to look like? Well, unfortunately, we're not going to show you but know for sure that summer 2015 is going to be sunny. Check back soon for a killer Kickstarter product unveiling that will blow your mind. 

Wooden Sunglasses Hand Delivered

We wanted to meet our pioneer customers along the Wasatch Front of the Rocky Mountains. So we jumped in our cars and headed out to hand deliver the very first batch of Westwood Sunglasses. For hours, we drove around the hills and valleys of Utah making friends and chatting about Westwood eyewear. 

Westwood was created to bring style to the outdoor life. Most of the rad people we met were avid outdoor enthusiasts. We met longboards, paddle boarders, skier, runners and plenty of hikers. All were pretty stoked on getting outside to rock their new Westwood sunglasses.
