These Kiko frames by Nkuku are one of their most iconic pieces. The glass front and back make them great for photographs, or other precious keepsakes like postcards, concert tickets and drawings. They look great grouped together in a range of sizes and orientations. Each one is strung with a recycled sari tie.
The metal is skilfully soldered around the glass with traditional tools; this handmade process means that there are weld marks on the joins of each piece, a feature that tells the story of how the product is made.
Two sizes and portrait or landscape to choose from (select from the drop down menu):

Made in India
Nkuku was founded on the back of a life-changing adventure for Ali and Alex Cooke when they set off on a year-long round the world trip. From the outset they were inspired and humbled by the talented craftspeople and their beautiful work, that we met on the journey.
It then encouraged them to do something different, so on their return, they moved to rural Devon and started working with artisans throughout the world, supporting and celebrating their skills by bringing their products to a wider audience.
