Capital Eyewear has trolled Northern California and recovered enough 1,000-year-old Redwood to craft 25 pairs of history-rich sunglasses. The wood originally served as a railroad bridge built in the 1800s. The bridge was torn down in the 1950s, with most of the remnant wood recently reclaimed for use in building a beach house. Construction leftovers serve as the basis for these wayfarers, each pair of which was handmade and numbered in San Francisco, and fitted with Carl Zeiss vision lenses coated in 100% UV protection.
