Barcelona Cute Suite - Vuerich B new handmade recycled wood glasses

Last week I visited the guys from Vuerich B. at their workshop to shoot some images for a BCN Handmade post (I will post it next week, so watch this space!) and they showed me their most recent creations. As Spring is here to stay, and Summer not that far ahead, I thought it was time to show you the view from here, glasses and shades that will make you stand out in a crowd they are so cool.

As you might recall from an earlier post about Vuerich B., their frames are hand-crafted from recycled skateboards. But now they have added a new range that is made from plywood to which they have added stained, or just varnished natural veneers in various wood-types.

Good looking, aren’t they?

Just remember that the recycled styles are one-off pieces and sell out quickly, and to check for the Vuerich B. logo, which you can find on the side of the arms.

Old skateboards

7 Feb

Take some old skateboards, cut them into rectangular pieces, shape them, sand them…

… and turn them into handmade sunglasses… how cool is that? Well, that is exactly what Barcelona based brand Vuerich B. does! Founded by Baptiste Vuerich, a skater himself, they found a great way to re-use those old, broken skateboards, and the result is frankly…

… gorgeous! The different layers of maple wood offer strength and flexibility, and the various colours of the artwork on the boards create endless and varied effects once the pieces have been cut, sanded and put together.

I don’t know about you, but I am dying to get my sweaty hands on a pair of these sexy sunglasses, and I am delighted that the Vuerich B. frames are also suitable for reading glasses! You can buy Vuerich B. glasses online, right here.
