Gucci Reveals Sustainable Bamboo-Inspired Sunglasses
Italian luxury house is going 'green' with its newest addition-- liquid-wood eyewear.
The Italian luxury house Gucci has been slowly revealing a new line of bio-based frames synthesized from castor seeds. In its effort to incorporate ‘green’ into their design, Gucci is now marketing its first-ever sunglasses made with liquid wood. The material is a combination of wood fibers sourced from sustainable forests, lignin from the paper-manufacturing process, and natural wax. This product is bio-degradable unlike the standard petroleum based plastic frames used by eyewear brands.
