Capital Eyewear's newest limited edition wood sunglasses are truly a piece of history. Made from ancient reclaimed redwood that is over 1,000 years old, these are the rarest glasses they have ever made.

The wood was originally cut for a railroad bridge in the 1800s. In the 1950s the bridge was torn down and the wood was put into storage. Recently, it was reclaimed to build a California beach house and they created these sunglasses from what was left over from the home's construction. In a way, the wood for these glasses is actually RE-reclaimed.

The age of the wood gives it a very distinct reddish brown rings that are extremely close together. Each pair of glasses is marked with it's individual number 1 through 25 and comes with a handmade leather case that is also handmade in the USA.
