Hout Couture sunglasses is a brand of stylish eyewear based out of Cape Town, South Africa.
The Hout Couture sunglasses ('hout' means 'wood' in Afrikaans) line features lightweight, high-quality shades made only of wood. Each pair of sunglasses displays a unique pattern of bumps, knots and grains, a result of the individual trees from which the glasses were made. The eyewear is also great for the environment -- for each pair of Hout Couture glasses sold, a tree will be planted via South Africa's Eco-Schools project.
In terms of style, the Hout Couture glasses are versatile, simple and sleek, featuring classic designs like the wayfarer, the cat eye and the 'Ramsey,' which is a squarer version of the traditional aviator.
