Colorful Frame-Free Art: Indie Mats
Here is an alternative to traditional frame-and-glass artwork... Anne Sommers and Emma Hand, two creative friends from St. Louis, wanted to design a fuss-free frame-less way to display photos quickly while incorporating a bit of design. After looking around for a product that did that, they couldn't find it. Many chats later that went a little something like, "What's missing and how can we fill the void?", these free-spirited entrepreneurs pinpointed exactly what was needed and decided to make it themselves. Go team Sommers & Hand! One year later, Indie Mats was born, photo mats that incorporate pattern and color and go straight from the box to the wall in no time flat. Check them out below... No glass, no plexi, no frame, just a mat.
Indie Mats are made in the USA, sustainably printed, and affordable ($29-$39) and available for purchase here. Of course, practicality out of the way, they look lovely, colorful and fun. Good luck with your new collection ladies and thank you for offering to debut the line today on decor8!
