Hamdi said the wooden eyewear is not his invention, but he made it in a modern way, with different beautiful shapes, and engraved on it a different Egyptian civilization to represent Egypt.

Regarding the period needed to prepare the collection, he explained, "It takes a lot of time to get from design to production, thank God we have today more than 20 different designs, each with Egyptian names, including Isis and Cleopatra, to express the Egyptian civilization."

Hamdi mentioned that the types of wood used in the manufacture of these eco-friendly eyeglasses are Ebony, Walnut, Rosewood, and Wenge.

"They are pressed and treated, and then we mix different types of wood, so that eyeglasses, in the end, are in these attractive shapes," he added.

Hamdi highlighted that what distinguishes the "Nile Eyewear" is the different forms of treatment and quality to lock in the eyeglasses.

"We are making a launch accompanying the Climate Conference, and it will be sustainable, meaning it is eco-friendly eyeglasses. It has Egyptian inscriptions that express the drawings of the Egyptian civilization in all ages," according to the Egyptian designer.
