Palo was founded by famous Spanish designer Enoc Armengol in Barcelona in 2010. The name -Palo- means “wooden stick” in Spanish and gives a playful tribute to its Spanish origins and funkier side. Palo creates unique wooden products that embody a passion for innovative design and love for the finest natural materials. Enoc designs the wooden sunglasses himself. They are exquisitely handcrafted from one piece of sustainable hardwood with expert craftsmanship. No layers, just natural wood.
Palo’s philosophy can be summed up in its “wood attitude” towards people and its surroundings. Palo has a strong commitment to the environment and its social responsibility. Each product is made exclusively with fair trade, sustainably grown and harvested wood from carefully monitored plantations. This promise is held strong through its collaboration with UNESCO Youth Peace Ambassadors and its Plant A Tree program.
