Frames

Frames

Our three standard frames are in the barefaced style – a clean, contemporary style with square edges and no decoration.

HAND-MADE FRAMES

Our frames are all solid wood – either Ash or Ayous – and the wood used is from sustainable sources.
Ash has beautiful grain and mellow tones, which enhance the pictures it borders. Ayous, or Obeche, is a wood grown specially for framing in several countries in West Africa.

HAND-CUT MOUNTS (MATS)

Our mounts (mats) are made from 1400 micron ‘conservation’ grade, FSC certified, acid-free board. This means that they will not fade or discolour with age.

SEALING AND TAPING

The pictures are framed to gallery standard and then finished with metal fittings and hanging twine.
