This chunky photo frame in a contemporary colour palette presents a gorgeous pastiche of a very traditional wheat sheaf design. Handmade from something called ecomix; a mixture of clay, chalk powder and paper pulp, it is hard-wearing and eco-friendly. The blocks of colour and the meaty frame is softened by the simplified and symmetrical relief design.
Supplier Info: Supplied to us via a medium scale manufacturer based in Jaipur, India, they own two factories, both employing around two hundred craftspeople at each location. The manufacturing processes juxtapose traditional methods, i.e. wood carving and pot throwing, with relevant and up-to-date modern design. Workers use components such as sustainable wood, ceramics, terracotta, iron and glass in their products. Artisans’ skills are boosted by training and workers receive paid leave, GPA and bonuses.
