Yes, all of the lenses on our wooden sunglasses have lightweight TAC polarized lenses!
To put it concisely, they have a scratch coating and block 100% of UV rays up to 400 nanometers.
TAC lenses are made of cellulose triacetate. Our TAC lenses are constructed in a 7 layer process. The first layer is the polarizing layer, providing more than 99% of the polarizing effect, and it especially effective in absorbing glare. The second and third layers are bonding layers, which can effectively resist cutting, baking, bending, and withstand the test of harsh environment. The fourth, fifth layer is ultraviolet absorbing layer, which absorbs more than 99% of UV ultraviolet. The sixth and seventh layers are anti-impact layers, which can improve toughness and impact resistance, prevent lens scratch and prolong the service life of the lenses. Another outstanding advantage is that the lenses are extremely light and thin.
With every new product we introduce, we try our best to use sustainable materials and minimize waste as best we can while still maintaining our top-of-the-line quality standard. All of our sunglasses are hand made with very high quality reclaimed and recycled wood. Almost all of our apparel is manufactured with these standards as well and many of the packaging materials are recycleable or biodegradable.
Our wood materials are like snowflakes, no two pieces are exactly identical. Each pair is... RARE ;). The product photos should be considered as a demonstration of what the product will resemble, but it will not be an exact representation. Not every pair of sunglasses are built the exact same as each R A R E pair of sunglasses experiences thorough, individual attention as it goes through the handcrafted manufacturing process. The colors of the wood will also slightly vary depending on the age of the wood, climate, temperature, and sun exposure.
We consider our wooden sunglasses to be splashproof. Through our finishing techniques, our sunglasses can handle exposure to small amounts of water such as sweat or a day at the beach. Keep in mind, they are made of wood and will warp with excessive exposure to water or submersion.
Ahhhh that is the lovely smell of bamboo! Before we make our awesome bamboo boxes, we first bake them. In some cases, this heightens the smell. The scent will go away on its own, but if you want to speed up the process, you can put it in a cool, ventilated place.
International orders may be subject to import duties and taxes on receipt of the package in the destination country. The customer is responsible for any customs charges that may be applied to the shipment. Unfortunately, R A R E has no control over these charges. Customs determines these charges and R A R E has no way of knowing what these charges may be. Shwood is not responsible for any actions taken by customs or the chosen package delivery service.
At R A R E, we stand by the quality of our materials and take pride in our handcrafted manufacturing process. We offer a 3 Month Warranty on all of our wooden sunglasses for normal wear and tear. Because each of our sunglasses are built with individual attention, it is possible to see some inconsistencies in construction. If you have any issues with your sunglasses, don't hesitate to Contact Us with pictures or videos of your defective pair. We will do what we can to help!
All hats and apparel are not covered by this warranty.
