Wooden Sunglasses Created Using Traditional Boat-Building Methods
Applying old world skills to a product usually focused on high-tech materials creates a classic look for this eyewear line.
Fritz is the man responsible for taking an age-old (and unexpected) set of crafting skills and applying them to an industry that normally prides itself on high-tech materials.
Sunglasses might not seem like the best product for a boat builder to be focussing his time on, but the results speak for themselves. Beautifully hand-crafted sunglasses that use a variety of timbers and traditional techniques to give each pair a unique character.
Born and raised in Germany on Rugen Island in the Baltic Sea, Fritz is a wooden boat builder by trade. After mastering sailing yachts, he experimented with furniture, kite-boards and other objects. Nowadays, the entrepreneur craftsman claims that deigning sunglasses enriches his life with beauty and meaning, two of life’s essential rewards.
