Based in Alliance, Ohio, Anni Shades is a wooden eyewear company that operates with a one-for-one scheme: for each pair sold, the company will plant a tree in their local community. The company offers both eyeglasses and sunglasses -- both of which are available to be fit for prescriptions. Styles include aviator, overlook, uptown, ryors and kohen, which also come in earthy colors such as blood wood and maple.
Anni Shades uses legally sourced woods for each pair, so the designs come out as individualized through production, which involves an 8 ply manufacturing process so that wood is sturdy. Anni is currently available in select retailers in Florida, Illinois, New York and California.
