Ugmonk x Verde Styles: Premium Bamboo Sunglasses

This collaboration between Ugmonk and Verde Styles makes me quiver. I love it. I’ve always been a fan of wayfarer style sunglasses and so these bamboo frames will fit right in with my collection of multi-colored Ray Ban Wayfarers.

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world and is eco-friendly, durable and lightweight. We’ve teamed up with Verde Styles for a special collaboration on our latest product: handcrafted bamboo sunglasses.

A small Ugmonk ampersand has been engraved on each side and the distinct bamboo texture makes each pair truly unique. 1.1 polarized lenses make these glasses not only stylish but a solid pair of shades. Also, each pair comes in a custom bamboo case and a microfiber pouch to keep the shades safe when they’re not on your head.

The sunglasses are available in two color options: natural and brown.

The Ugmonk x Verde Styles: Premium Bamboo Sunglasses are available now from Ugmonk for $115.
