The customer requested this piece of textile (possibly once a decorative cushion cover) reduced in size and framed without the use of a mount. This meant a fillet was used just under the edges of the frame to keep the beadwork from touching the glass. A narrow box was constructed at the back to hold the fabric once stretched as the moulding chosen only had a shallow rebate. Tru Vue glass was used which is virtually invisible, gives 92%UV protection (important for textiles) and wonderful clarity to view the detail of the embroidery.
