Wishlist // Xylo eyewear

I’ve been meaning to do this post a long time ago, but always postponed it until today. I was introduced to Xylo Eyewear by a friend who sent me their collection, asking about my advice on which pair to buy.
I was fascinated by their collection instantly!
Xylo summer 2013 indiegogo-Sand
It started as an idea back in May 2013, when two friends from Syros island in Cyclades, decided to start their own bussiness by crafting wooden frames for sunglasses in 16 different wooden combinations. They used Greek walnut, American walnut, wenge, maple, rosewood, bubinga and zebrawood.
Fly / Zebrawood and Maple
And that is because they think that wooden eyewear is not a luxurious item, but an antifact that comes from good technique, attention to detail, and care for the material and the final outcome.
Blaze /  Dark Walnut and Wenge
They use replaceable, polarized lenses that protect from UVA UVB radiation, featuring an exterior scratch resistant coating and interior anti-reflect coating also,that satisfy the criteria of the E.U. (En 1836) and the U.S.A. standards (ANSI Z80.3). 
WAVE / American Walnut and Zebrawood
Currently they offer one of the most dinstictive eyewear collection, I’ve ever seen as a fashionista (if I can ever call myself like that). 
SAND / Bubinga and Maple
I always like the idea of supporting innovative small bussiness at their beginning, so why not order your pair? You can contact them via email at xyloeyewear@gmail.com or on their Facebook  and Twitter profile. Also you can have a sneak peek at their collection here .

I love their fly collection, it reminds me of the Beatles. What’s your favourite?
