People really concerned about the environment should think twice about plastic frame sunglasses made in China. Most international brands are now made in China, including Maui Jims and Ray Ban.

The company also offers a full variety of sunglasses made with other exotic, sustainable woods such as Italian Ebony, Rosewood, Zebrano, and Bloodwood.

The frames are made from 100% sustainable, non-endangered woods. This unique development process creates sunglasses that are curved to fit the contour of the head. This makes Martin & MacArthur wood sunglasses comfortable and easy to wear. The wood is shaped to fit snugly on the head, and now slide off. The hinges are imported from Switzerland because these are the finest, most durable hinges we could find.
