No trees are chopped down in the making of Lochs. We are the only wooden sunglasses manufacturers to exclusively use water-reclaimed wood. This means that Loch doesn’t contribute to the deforestation of lands and eco-systems or the importation of bamboo and other exotic woods through wasteful transportation networks. It isn’t easy to use reclaimed materials, but it is the right thing to do.
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
Loch uses a mixture of technology and handcrafted expertise to produce the world’s first 500+ year-old water-reclaimed wooden frames. We choose to take our time focusing on the details for an exquisite product, rather than going the route of mass production. In doing so we are saying, “yes” to small-scale manufacturing and job creation. Moreover, we source our hinges from Austria because they are simply the best and strongest. While they raise our costs, Austrian made hinges coincide with our desire to create higher quality products and buying experiences.
LESS STRAIN ON OUR PLANET
Poorly made products are a huge burden on our landfills. Purchasing quality products breaks this wasteful cycle and is an effective way to live well without compromising the Earth.
