We strive to give you a chance to try something different and express your personal style. 


CALIUS is based in sunny San Diego. The root, alius, is a Latin word meaning something else · different · beyond, combined with the inspirational landscape of California naturally resulted in CALIUS wooden eyewear.


CALIUS eyewear is made from sustainable durable hardwoods such as sandalwood, old annatto, peacock burl and zebrawood. The manufacturing process merges modern technology with traditional craftsmanship to create a timeless art piece. Every CALIUS frame is made by hand from sustainable materials, including wood only from ethically sourced and managed forests which are bound by the sustainable forestry management standards of the FSC.


Some of our models have a dual-purpose frame: sunglasses / RX (optical) frames. Due to Split-frame design for easy lens insertion, lenses from original CALIUS sunglasses models can be easily exchanged for prescription lenses.


Lightweight, comfortable CALIUS wooden sunglasses have a unique aesthetic and feeling. All CALIUS models are fitted with premium stainless steel spring hinges and European standard (CE) UV 400 (100% UVA/UVB) polarized lenses for your eye protection. Each pair is covered by a one year warranty against any manufacturer damage or defects in materials or workmanship on all products from the date of purchase.
