About Us

Angelo Grazzini first learnt the trade of framing in the early 1950s in his hometown of Lugo, Italy. After emigrating to Australia, he opened his first framing store in 1975. 

Angelo is now joined in the business by his son Alex, where they work side by side, and together they are proud to be a family owned and operated business.

OUR HISTORY

Angelo first learnt the trade in the early 1950s in his hometown of Lugo, Italy. Literally being involved in the process from drying the tree trunk, milling and moulding the wood to putting on gold leaf, it was an experience that exposed him to many skills at a young age.

Deciding to make Australia his home, Angelo turned to his skills learnt in Italy and the partnership of a friend, to start a frame manufacturing business in Box Hill. The business was a great success and soon they were supplying to retail giants like Myer.

An interest in art led him to open the framing shop in 1975 where he could get more hands on with clients producing the final framed product and offering a personalised service to frame their works of art. In 1992 they relocated to their current location in Hawthorn.

Owner operator Angelo now works side by side with his son Alex, who along with trade qualifications also learnt under the guidance of their father.
