pet peeve time- why does "Asian" so often mean "bamboo"? And why do clients consistently ask for "bamboo" frames when framing images of palm trees? I love bamboo as a building material (makes great floors!) and I've seen some really nice frames made from bamboo, but most mouldings made to look like bamboo come off as cheesy and dated. maybe its just me. that's my rant for the day. i feel better already.

In that case look at these Munn Frameworks Chinese frames:

Bamboo is only "Asian" in western sensibility. Black or cinnabar simple profiles would be more common and depending on culture the frames can be gilded as well. In addition to Pat's offerings:
Kobe cornered frames like this: 1580488828112.png
And decorative incised gold corners like this1580488899241.png
are more "Asian" than bamboo.

I've been using the Nurre Palladio line (mostly skinny profile, but also the cube profile) for Japanese prints for many years. It doesn't shout "asian" but it is comfortable on them.
