Hot on Taobao is a monthly segment where we feature a product from Taobao our editors think is cool.
With South China’s monsoon season in full swing, there may be days when you ask yourself, why on earth do I need a pair of sunglasses? But the days of torrential rain also coincide with our region’s other bout of intense weather. We’re talking, of course, about extreme heat, and the blinding summer sun.
Fortunately, Taobao has got just the thing to protect you from those horribly aggressive rays of light: handmade zebra wood sunglasses by Max Glasiz.
For decades, wood has been used to class up everything from home decor to the side panels on old station wagons. So why not brighten up your style by bringing that natural look right to your face?
With the exception of the lens and hinges, these glasses are made entirely of wood, sanded smooth and lightly varnished, so there’s no need to worry about taking a splinter to the eye. And, unlike those cheap RayBan knockoffs that broke two days after you put them on, these shades will actually stay in one piece, with polarized lenses that come in a variety of colors to ensure your vision remains 20/20.
Max Glassiz Wooden Sunglasses are available for RMB138 on Taobao.
