About Charlie x Wood

About Us

We are a locally owned and operated startup based out of the Metro Atlanta Area.  We are focused on creating high-quality products starting with our High Definition Sunglasses. 


Our Founder

Mike made the first pair of shades out of a cardboard box in an effort to salvage a broken pair of his favorite sunglasses.  Cutting the cardboard to house the lenses so that he could continue to enjoy the sunglasses while mountain biking. This worked for a while until the pair was ultimately misplaced.  From this experience, Mike decided to create the brand that would fight against lost, broken or stolen sunglasses and look good while doing it.  That is why we help replace all of our sunglasses for our customers to this day. 


Our Mission 

We are dedicated to finding local partners that will allow us to create beautiful products, contribute to our community and grow our local economy. We are currently in a full sprint to grow past the start-up phase so that we can obtain a permanent location and move our business out of our home. 


Why Charlie x Wood

Our Founder picked Charlie x Wood as a reminder that we all represent more than ourselves, and we have a duty to do it well.
