This is the Samba Backpack Frame we made recently for a customer in Manchester. It’s a bit of a departure from our Black Fox weathervanes and house signs, but was an interesting project to do. She is in the process of wrapping the frame with ribbons and attaching feathers, looking really good so far and can’t wait to see it finished!

We recently received an enquiry from a customer asking if we could produce a frame for a Samba dancing costume. It’s not the kind of thing we normally do but here it is! We used 4mm steel rod to keep it light, which was interesting because I’m not really used to working with such thin material. Easy to bend into shape but not so easy to weld as its so delicate. Its just come back from the electroplaters, and I’m really looking forward to seeing it decorated!
