American company proof uses 5-ply Canadian maple skateboard decks to handcraft a unique set of eyewear. An assemblage of colorful layers of wood, the ‘Skate Collection’ offers a number of different styles:
‘Ontario’ is a wooden interpretation of the popular wayfarer style; the ‘Bud’ sunglasses take on a modern classic shaped frame; and ‘Smoke Jumper’ has an aviator style frame. Each pair is hand polished and coated with a water / sweat protective seal and comes with a custom wood case and microfibre pouch. A portion of each sale goes to non-profit charities in India that provide sight giving surgeries to people with cataracts.
