Just write to us (list the products you would like to buy and list your delivery address) and we’ll get back to you with the shipping cost and details on how to order.

Backorder

If a frame is only available on backorder, allow up to eight weeks for us to make your item (from placement of order until ready to post).

How to Hang Your Frames

To hang the frame on your wall, simply loop the cord over a nail, screw head or hook.

 

Remember to choose a nail, screw head or hook which is suitable for bearing weight on your particular type of wall. Allow for the weight of the frame and the display piece: our lightest frames (Card Frames in Hoop Pine) are around 50g and our heavier frames (Book Frame in dense Hardwoods) are a little over 1kg.

 

Here is an example of our favourite wall hook for a timber wall:

Materials Sustainability

Material selection is important to us. We choose premium, natural materials that are environmentally sustainable.

 

Our frames are made from recycled Australian hardwood or Queensland Hoop Pine. Check out our about us page where we describe these timbers in detail.

 

The braided cord is 100% cotton, inside and out.

The Making

Our frames are made by us in Brisbane, Australia.

Colour, Characteristics and Care - Recycled Hardwood

Our recycled hardwoods are classic aged and of premium grade. We use a variety of Australian Hardwood species. Read our about page to learn about our timber source and sustainability is detail.

 

You can choose between two natural colours:

– Blonde coloured timbers with fair tones of ripe wheat, sandy shores and an occasional soft pinkish tinge.

– Brunette coloured timbers which range from pale brunette through to dark chocolate.

 

Our hardwood frames are finished with clear, natural oils. Let it age gracefully or maintain the finish by re-applying occasionally.

 

Most frames will reveal characteristics of the recycled timber’s former life, such as charcoal coloured flecks around nail holes. These unique variations add warmth and history to each piece.

 

The natural grain and colours vary from being straight and minimal to being curved and beautiful. Some pieces have unique knots and swirls (we love finding these).  The frames are reversible so you can alternate which side faces forward depending on your personal taste.
