About Legacy Eyewear | Wooden Sunglasses Handmade in NC

Our wooden sunglasses & wood products are about the material, the maker and most importantly the user.

Born on the Intracoastal Waterways of North Carolina, a lifestyle of sand and sun fuels Legacy Eyewear

The Wood Studio was conceived in 2010 as a passion project of owner, Pete Duncan. Cutting his teeth in his father's workshop, he realized that there was no escaping the inherent beauty of natural materials. The progression of the wood studio to a handcrafted wood eyewear company is a long and storied tale, that ends with the need for affordable, beautiful, and rugged eyewear that goes anywhere. Legacy Eyewear was created in 2016 to further push The Wood Studio into the eyewear industry and to help it kick off a brand new line!

As the waves crash on our white sand beaches and the sun rises over the marshes, we toil away in a dusty woodshop. A pursuit to create the best wooden eyewear is underway, made from natural materials, that will stand the test of time.

Our wood sunglasses are handcrafted by a small team of craftsmen. Each pair is put through rigorous scrutiny of both quality and finish. All our wood sunglasses come standard with the best polarized lenses available, with dual scratch resistant coatings, 100% UVA/UVB protection, and are shatter proof. The frames are double-hinged for amazing flexibility to comfortably fit most faces. For all you folks who have lost a pair of your favorite sunnies to the depths of a lake or ocean, no worries, these puppies float!
