April 25, 2023

The Limited Edition Frames Celebrate Arches, Joshua Tree, Glacier & Crater Lake

/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – National Park Week is a nine-day celebration of all things “parks,” honoring our more than 400 national parks, as well as the programs and partners that help preserve their heritage.

This National Park Week (April 22 – 30) CAMP by Shwood Eyewear is proud to release a limited-edition capsule that celebrates four of the most iconic national parks around the U.S. – Arches National Park, Joshua Tree National Park, Glacier National Park, and Crater Lake National Park. Each frame in the capsule, which is made with plant-based bio-plastic, features a new unique national park-inspired colorway and comes with a fun, color-coordinated sleeping bag pouch. The sunglasses also include a custom park-inspired cleaning cloth and packaging designed in partnership with Portland-based illustrator and designer Emma Boys.

With every purchase of the CAMP National Park Collection, Shwood will donate 5% of sales to local nonprofitsworking to support Arches, Joshua Tree, Glacier, and Crater Lake National Parks. 

“This CAMP capsule has been a real passion project and we’re excited to not only share these fun, park-inspired frames, but to partner with awesome organizations doing amazing work to help support our national parks,” said Shwood Creative Director Taylor Murray. “Incorporating natural, organic, and sustainable materials into our eyewear has been Shwood’s ethos and process since day one – we can’t think of a better way to carry on the tradition of capturing nature’s beauty into our designs than with this new national park-inspired collection.”

CAMP is an outdoor-ready eyewear collection from Shwood, the Portland-based purveyor of handcrafted, experimental eyewear and maker of the original wood sunglasses. Designed with adventure in mind, the mixed materials of the CAMP collection merge together to achieve the perfect blend of rugged durability and sustainable style! The simple silhouettes are designed for comfort and clarity, whether biking to work or hiking through the backcountry, the collection delivers classic style with a natural twist. Plus, every pair of CAMP sunglasses comes with a handy, retro sleeping bag travel pouch.

The CAMP National Park Collection launches April 25th and is available at select specialty retailers and online exclusively at Huckberry and on shwoodshop.com.
