If you are on the hunt for a pair of sunglasses you should have a look at Azir Miza. Designed by Hazım Gözlükçü (the name translates to “Glass Maker” in Turkish – Hazım’s family were the first glass-makers of the Turkish Republic back in the 1920’s), Azir Miza is a five year old brand. What makes this brand unique is the fact that the frames of their glasses are hand made from oak tree wood, a rarity on the market.
Hazım personally puts together panels of oak wood with a technique named “lamination”. Then he adds oak tree oil instead of varnish to maintain a natural feel and give them a nice smell. The glasses are completed with a pair of colorful lenses that make a great contrast with oak wood frames. Sunglasses made out of wood… who would have thought, uh?
