South Africa’s Hout Couture eco-friendly sunglasses are made of wood, each pair featuring unique patterns and grains from the tree it is made of. Manufactured in Cape Town, the wooden frames offer a breathable, lightweight and durable alternative to plastic, and polarized lenses come as standard.

For each pair of sunglasses purchased, the seed of an indigenous tree or fruit tree is planted through the Eco-Schools project in the country. This initiative, supported by WWF-SA and the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA), aims to educate children in schools on the importance of trees and “living lightly on our planet” through sustainable practices.
