Exclusive to Print with Loop. We darken our timber frames using an all natural, eco-friendly wood treatment. This treatment reacts with the natural tannins within the wood, turning it black and creating a beautiful, natural finish which enhances the wood’s natural grain. An eye catching, contemporary black frame to show off your best memories.

Our frames are handcrafted to order from Acacia Elata, an invader species being cleared from local, indigenous forests. This timber is then, in turn, repurposed by us as a sustainable option. We use locally produced glass in our frames.
The wood frame is designed to sit flush against the wall.
Each frame has a Flexi point backing, for ease of print rotation.

We darken our wood to black using an “age old” process called “ebonizing”.
Ebonizing is a natural wood treatment which creates a darkening effect on the timber by reacting with the wood’s natural tannins. This method compliments the natural grain of the wood while beautifully darkening it, leaving a natural finish and texture which does not coat the timber. Eco-friendly and petrol-chemical free. The frame is then sealed with 100% pure tung oil, a natural oil that is derived from the Tung tree.
