Expertise. Design. Preservation.
Over the years we have framed many pieces from the travels of our customers both near and far. This beautiful hand woven rug was purchased on a trip to Turkey and brought to us to frame and protect for a lifetime. The piece is intricate so the framing needed to set off the image yet not compete.
The wonderful frames from Fotiou Framing were chosen for their beauty, elegance and simplicity. The large scale of the outer frame holds the piece nicely on the wall, the pattern of the middle frame picks up the darks and intricacies of the rug while the inner fillet ties the frame together and softens the transition.
The rug is tied down to the fabric mat and extra care was used in the backing to ensure stability and preservation. Because of the large scale and our clients preference for no glare, Optium Museum Acrylic was chosen for the glazing. The acrylic also provides 99% UV blocking, an important consideration for artwork in the High Desert. When all put together, this is a beautiful handmade rug framed to highlight the piece and preserved for years to come.
