SMITH  X  NORTH

THE
OBSIDIAN GLASS
COLLECTION

Smith and North Drinkware have come together to celebrate the beauty of glass with this collection inspired by the volcanic Northwest. Each set of this limited edition Obsidian Glass Collection includes a custom Lowdown 2 sunglass debuting the ChromaPop™ polarized glass lenses and a custom etched, black tinted Mt. Hood Pint glass. The topography used to create North's pint glass is also featured as the artwork on the sunglass frame. Each brand's unique connection to the mountains of the Cascades merge for this unique collaboration. Pursue your thrill and bring the mountains home with the Obsidian Glass Collection.


THE INSPIRATION

Obsidian is a hard, dark, glasslike volcanic rock formed by the rapid solidification of lava without crystallization. Obsidian can be found in many places around Oregon, the home for both North and Smith. This inspired North to create a limited edition black tinted and etched Mt Hood Pint glass and Smith to make the Lowdown 2 available with glass lenses for the first time, offering the highest possible clarity and quality. Topographic details on the Lowdown's temples highlight Mt. Hood's majestic Terrain. These limited edition glass products bring the magic and beauty of obsidian and its Oregon roots to life.


GIVING BACK TO THE MOUNTAINS

As North is a member of 1% For The Planet a percentage of the sales from the Obsidian Glass Collection gives back to the mountains and will go towards the Pacific Crest Trail Association. The mission of the PCTA is to protect, preserve and promote the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail as a world-class experience for hikers and equestrians, and for all the values provided by wild and scenic lands.
