Zanzibar Frame - House of Wonders

from 48.00

The art of woodcarving has a long history along the East African coast and flourished in Zanzibar. 

These handcrafted frames are made in Zanzibar by Amour and his team of skilled wood workers. Villagers bring their olden pieces of wood to the workshop where doors, boats and windows are carefully transformed into unique pieces. With every purchase you buy a piece of history.

This piece is truly a unique piece. When the famous 'House of Wonders' partly collapsed in 2016, Amour ran to the site to collect the old wood and used it for making this frame. 

Available as picture frame or mirror. The picture frames comes with glass and a cardboard backing, ready to frame your favorite image. For mirror finishing we need 2 weeks delivery time. 

The outside frame size is approximately 30x45cm - The inside frame size: 20x30cm
