    This Wooden Eyewear Brand Is Both Stylish & Sustainable

    What Makes It Awesome

    That they're doing cool, curated eyewear made entirely with ethically sourced walnut wood. Since they are a relatively new brand, they've only got one collection out on their Insta store (@see.through.sasha) as of now—it's called Origin, and it consists of about 15 styles that range across cat-eye, circular, sport, square, oval, butterfly and more.  I tried a bunch of their stuff out before I chose a piece (I finally settled on a simpler, dark-lensed cat-eye frame in a teak-esque colour). However, after trying on multiple pairs (you can even see me looking like a sulky little idiot in one picture if you swipe right), I realised that most were a bit big for my face. I don't blame the glasses, though—this happens to me with most eyewear brands.  A lot of these glasses are also extremely photographable. While I, personally, wasn't brave enough to try on the funkiest stuff, you'll find mad frames in crazy colours and styles that will make your Insta seriously pop. Quality wise, they seem to be more solid their a lot of their counterparts (that I've encountered, at least).

    What Could Be Better

    They may be a bit of an investment, but since they're both sustainable and great quality, it's not too bad for sustainable wooden sunnies (that are also limited ed). Also, we wish they had an e-store—but we hear that on its way

    How Much Did It Cost
