Drawing inspiration from his Ghanaian roots and his love for nature, eyewear designer and founder of Bohten, Nana Boateng Osei has created lightweight, comfortable, zero-waste sunglasses made out of reclaimed wood from West Africa.

Bohten recently presented its Spring/Summer 2016 collection of sunglasses and I think it’s a must have for every stylish sunglasses lover. Each pair is unisex and very easy to wear with just about any outfit.
