Welcome to Vilo! We are a 100% New Zealand owned and operated business, managed and directed by Kiwi husband and wife duo, Josh and Francesca. Our business is based in Whangarei in the winterless north of New Zealand. This setting feeds our delight in the outdoors and provides almost daily opportunity for adventure. After transforming an old Macrocarpa deck into a table and upcycling a rotting Totara sleeper into a TV cabinet, Josh developed a curiosity into the boundaries of wood as a medium.
From curiosity birthed a passion for ecologically conscious bamboo and other sustainably sourced woods. We love that this medium is used, as each pair of sunglasses or watch casing is unique, with the veins and colours exclusive to each. Our hope is that our pieces accompany you on your adventures.
