Like the city of Detroit where they originate, these handsome picture frames are symbols of endurance and rebirth. They come right from the heart of the city—they're made using salvaged wood from trees that have been cleared during the city's redevelopment. The process of converting this "urban timber" from scrap to a beautiful frame is done by Urban Ashes, a company which draws its craftspeople from the state's transitional or disabled workforce. Even the glass and backing panel are produced in are produced in the Midwest, helping to improve the economic picture for the region. Such a heritage makes these frames a remarkable and heartfelt way to display your own family photographs or keepsakes. Handmade in Brighton, Michigan.
Urban Salvaged Wood Frames have been discontinued. When they sell out, they will no longer be available.
