About L’Eclat De Verre
L’Eclat de Verre was founded over thirty years ago by three brothers in Versailles. The company began as an arts and crafts supply store, but quickly grew into a French art framing boutique. Shortly thereafter the company established a framing academy led by its master framers which established framing as a do-it-yourself hobby in France. L’Eclat de Verre’s Master framers are required to train for four years at a framing academy to grasp the art of framing. The company’s master framers created a framing methodology which combines French 18th century methods with modern elements creating a one of a kind technique. Today, L’Eclat de Verre has expanded to over 40 locations around the world and employs over fifty master framers. For more information, please visit: http://www.eclatdeverre.com/us/
