The Next Chapter

More subtle than the Select model, the Canby Original Newspaper features our best-selling wooden frame, fitted with beautiful newspaper temple inlays for a striking look.


The newspaper collection is crafted using a proprietary technique, rolling up 1600 feet of newsprint into a 4-inch diameter “log”. These logs are then sawn into 1/8-inch plies to reveal a unique, wood-like texture. Once the newspaper is added to our original wooden frames and hand-finished, the result is a beautiful piece of eyewear, unlike anything else you'll see.


The Canby silhouette looks good on most face shapes.
