We're always watching out for new, fun, interesting and beautiful frames for our customers. Below is a selection of "Primative," frames with textures and patterns that echo "tribal" motives. These frames are perfect for collections of indigenous paintings, fabric work and photographs. See framing ideas below and scroll down further for the "Primitive" samples.
