Not long after the release of our first Eyewood models, our collection of beloved sunglasses with wooden temples, we knew that we should focus our attention on making a collection of engraved wooden eyewear. We started drawing on a bunch of different designs that we thought would match our vision and soon agreed on that we would start it off by releasing a couple of designs that reflect historic events and ancient civilizations, such as the mystic Nazca lines, huge geoglyphs formed made in the soil of the Nazca Desert in southern Peru. Another design was inspired by the era of the vikings.
We have every intention of widen the series, if there is one thing we have it´s ideas to make the Zerpico brand bigger and stronger. We already have a couple of new sketches just waiting to be made into a beautiful pair of wooden sunglasses. Our plan is to release at least one new design every season and we are positive that they will all be greated with the same love that we have recieved for them so far.
The designs were most of all created for those looking for something that you don´t normally see when you think about a pair of sunglasses. We wanted to make something that would catch the eye. A piece of art in fact. We do know that these shades aren´t for everyone and that´s exactly what their intention was to begin with. They are ultimately for people that share an interest in the same things that we are, that are intrigued by the greatness in our world. The history of it.
The best thing about using wood sunglasses is that it makes them more personal. Wood is a living material and even if we wanted to make sunglasses that would look exactly the same it wouldn´t be possible, as one part of the tree looks far from the same as another part. Using wood also makes the sunglasses adapt to you. The more you wear them the more personal they become.
In time we will also start trying out some new colors and patterns as well. We will try out other types of wood too. We will not stop pursuing perfection. As we usually release special versions and limited editions make sure that you sign up for our news letters as they sell out quickly.
All of our wooden sunglasses are delivered in a handmade, exclusive empress tree case and a microfiber pouch together with a polishing cloth, packed with everything you need on your coming adventures.
