Karmawood Eyewear at Mister Spex
Emerging from the depths of friendship and a love of design, it’s difficult to come up with a more beautiful story for a label. Four close friends named Trutz von Klodt, Nikolai Bender, Carlo Böninger and Sönke Dierks are the fathers of Karmawood, the brand that became known for handmade sunglasses from the far north. The idea is not new, but the natural material of wood is their passion, as is the port city of Hamburg, where they live and their glasses are manufactured.
Karmawood represents classic design combined with the ideal of sustainability. As a result, the brand’s philosophy is based on the four pillars of their friendship, fun in design, a love of wood and the utmost respect for man and nature. Transient trends and brash consumerism play a lesser role. The four founders use only sustainably grown wood and environmentally-friendly production methods for their products. However, the label doesn’t just do its bit for the environment, it also supports the next generation. For each pair sold, Karmawood donates one euro to the Yayasan Cipta Mandiri School in Jakarta, which provides a better education to poor children.
With a pair of Karmawood sunglasses you are not only guaranteed great style, but you are also doing something for the greater good at the same time. Glasses made from wood are THE alternative to the usual plastic or metal varieties.
