It´s no secret that a pair of glasses can make anyone look more attractive (if you´ve ever been to Italy, you know what I mean). In addition to correcting our vision and protecting our eyes from the sun, spectacles can create a signature look. I don´t think I exaggerate when I say that choosing the right pair can be a form of art.
There are many examples of iconic glasses: Warhol, Dylan, Saint Laurent, Elton John, John Lennon, Karl Lagerfeld, Bono, and Kubick´s Lolita are just a few. But lately, I really love the ones that are made of wood, specially the ones created by a mexican brand called Cardinal.
Cardinal was founded by five young mexican entrepreneurs who are aware that the planet needs a change. All of Cardinal´s sunglasses and spectacles are handcrafted, and for each piece they sell, the owners plant a tree. All of the wood they use is certified and they also support Pelagic Life, a wild rescue with a great impact on the Sea of Cortes ecosystem.
You can buy their products online, and the good news is they ship worldwide.
