Each handmade mat uses fabric to provide a background for your image that cannot be replicated with standard mat boards, such as shantung silk or crinkled silk. In particular, the blue wave fabric cannot be added to a mat board using hot glue on the front of the mat board, as that the glue changes the color of the fabric.
Mat will fit most frames; it is approximately 1/16th inch thick (0.0625"). The standard mat thickness is 4 ply (0.0625"), so I used a 2 ply mat board as my base and attached the fabric with archival-quality adhesives.
As shipped, the item might have a slight amount of curvature, but will flatten properly once inside a frame.
To help your photo fit this mat, a ribbon inside the rim of the mat opening or corner tabs can be added at no charge.
