Juha, founder of Mahonki; an online store, one day stumbled upon a pair of wooden glasses and was immediately amazed. We at Bonocle love wooden glasses as well as you can read about here, here, here and here. It feels so nice against the skin and the frames are very light.
These are our favorites from Mahonki.

We’ve got a lot of questions and interest about wood frames from you readers. Fun! Personally I love the idea of having a frame all made by natural wood. Unfortunately I haven’t seen anyone in real life yet and to buy a wood frame you should be very sure about the frames comfort and fit, because the wood isn’t adjustable at all.
Is there anybody who knows any place to find wood frames in Stockholm or Berlin?
