Nielsen Bainbridge is one of the best known names in picture framing. Nielsen developed and popularized the modern aluminum sectional molding and Bainbridge is well known for their Artcare line of matting & mounting products.
There are always carbon footprint issues with a product manufactured on the other side of the world but we feel that Nielsen Bainbridge’s line of EcoCare readymade frames are a reasonable alternative to the mass market equivalents.
With a stylish urban flair and earthy undertones, EcoCare frames are made 100% from bamboo - a sustainable wood alternative from the grass family. The frames are finished with water based stains that don’t involve any oils, chemicals or solvents. The mats, backing boards, and the frame’s packaging are all crafted from recycled paper or wood pulp. In short, this might be the most environmentally friendly and responsible readymade frame on the market.
