Oh My Woodness! is SmartBuyGlasses first wooden eyewear brand, made up of hand crafted wooden framed sunglasses. Taking inspiration from nature itself, Oh My Woodness! adds a quirky twist to classic eyewear styles. This brand would make a perfect gift for someone with alternative, quirky tastes, or be a unique addition to your existing eyewear collection. What sets Oh My Woodness! apart is the unique use of wood as a frame material.
Traditional sunglasses frames are usually made out of plastic or lightweight metal. Using wood as a frame material is both practical and stylish. It makes the eyewear both lightweight and eye-catching, without being too ostentatious. And to better express their spirit to protect the earth, they created an event called “Buy One Plant One“. For each purchase of Oh My Woodness! collection, they will donate a percentage of the proceeds to the Eden Projects to plant a tree in Haiti, Nepal or Madagascar.

The wooden trend
In recent years, wooden eyewear has become increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional, plastic frame glasses. For the fashion-forward, normal plastic framed eyewear is no longer enough of a statement. Experimenting in different frame materials, whilst maintaining a minimalist design, ensures the eyewear looks unique, yet sophisticated. This is why so many designers from Palens to Raleri have turned to nature for their inspiration. Wood is a unique material, quite unlike any other, because of its intrinsic texture quality. Every piece of wood has different textures, patterns and colours, it means that no two pairs of eyewear created from them are the same. It means that every piece of eyewear is unique; its appearance is guided by natural forces rather than human design. The wearer is able to achieve a level of individuality in their look that plastic frame eyewear cannot provide.
