Lightweight, ergonomic, and stylish—eyeglass frames made from all-wood materials are changing the way we look at the world. Despite the hefty price tag, shoppers crave the hypo-allergenic and natural materials used to craft these one-of-a-kind pieces. The demand for these speciality wares has sprung a number of manufacturers and brands across the world, each crafting frames with unique designs to satisfy their ever-growing following. Here are a couple of names to watch:

ROLF: A small, family-run business situated in the heart of the Tyrolean Alps, Rolf produces handmade, lightweight wood, stone-and-wood combinations, and horn eyeglass frames. Produced completely without any metal parts or screws, Rolf frames are easy to maintain thanks to their special coating.

GOLD & WOOD: Maurice Leonard was one of the first craftsmen to create eyewear using only the most precious woods. Twenty years later, Gold & Wood continues its legacy of high-end design married with the finest materials for a stunning architectural product.

HERRLICHT: Made out of 100-percent European and North American woods, Herrlict makes frames that are not just sustainable, but have a unique warmth and flexibility.
