Tire-d of Boring Picture Frames?
How about a frame that's made out of recycled tires? This unique design is handcrafted in Moradabad, India, by artisans who work with Noah's Ark International. Many are women who work from home. The tire frame is lacquer coated and boasts two metal holders on the back for hanging plus a fold-out stand. It fits 4x6" photos.
Tread patterns vary according to the source tires, but each piece has a consistent look. Available from Ten Thousand Villages for $28.
