Item details

The secret to beautiful heirloom quality embroidery is the control of the ground fabric. The Japanese style embroidery frames stretch the fabric in both the weft and warp directions to provide an excellent base so you can create a lasting and stunning piece that will be the envy of your friends and family. One of the pictures illustrates how the frame is used with a piece of embroidered fabric attached. That specific frame in not for sale, but the principal is the same for all of them.

Japanese Embroidery is a traditional embroidery style done with flat and twisted silk thread. The tight ground fabric allows the shimmering silks to be displayed to their best advantage. Many other forms of embroidery also benefit from a tightly held ground fabric.

Our frames are made from a variety of hardwoods which will not suffer breakage allowing a partially finished piece to undergo disruption. The beautiful grains in the fine wood setting off the shimmering silk will providing a serene and calming center for the embroiderer themselves. Our frames are finished with no less than 5 layers of hand rubbed polyurethane providing a silky smooth feel to the wood.

The frame is 29 inches long and 20 inches wide. The stretcher bars can be a little longer. This is the size that is recommended for the early phases by the Japanese Embroidery Center.

This frame is purple heart wood with 3/4 inch stretcher bars. Purple heart is a beautiful colored wood from South America. The dowels are also purple heart. Hardware consists of 2 nails and 4 pegs.

Warning: purple heart is sensitive to UV light. We have used a UV protection finish on this piece, but sometime in the next 5 to 10 years it will start to fade. The wood will eventually turn brown. We recommend that you cover the frame when it is not in use and avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight.
