We Cherish the Power of Memories

The kind that warm us up from the inside, bringing laughter, tears of joy or nostalgia. Those special times of happiness, captured in the moment and forever treasured afterwards.

We have been custom framing and handmaking Australian timber frames, displays, and memory boxes for a number of years. The timbers we have used include many beautiful Tasmanian timbers, as well as Blue Gum, Jarrah, Jacaranda, Black Bean etc.  We handpick each piece of timber, sometimes the more unique the more difficult to work with, so that we can reveal the beauty within.  Designed and made to last, every piece is created to complement and hold those precious times or special art close by.

Check out our ready made gifts below, and contact us for one custom made.

Fine Art Photo Print & Handmade Wooden Photo Frames

Our fine art photo / art prints use German archival standard papers, a 100% cotton rag base paper with beautiful texture and luxurious finish.  We print professionally in-house, using water-based pigment inks that have been designed for traditional fine art production with an impressive print permanence of over 200 years.

Together with the handmade Australian timber frames (and archival framing service if requested), gives you the ultimate quality and longevity to enjoy.

They are designed to connect you, move you, inspire you.

Who are we?

The Authentic is a small collective of wood work artists, photographers and designers based in Australia. We share a philosophy that the most authentic beauty of life,
is found in the everyday, and the special moments of joy, accomplishments and new beginnings.

We believe that these moments are what make life the most beautiful!
They are what make all the hard times worthwhile.

So it became our vision to create something that could masterfully capture the moment.
A way to display the extraordinary times of our lives.
Allowing us to relive the nostalgia of it whenever we so choose.

We wanted to design something unique, that could hold and protect our most special moments!
That was how The Authentic was born.
