This cheap eco-friendly frame straddles a gap in the market for trendy and affordable picture frame options. A person can spend hundreds of dollars on just the right ornamental border for her favourite images, with the other end of the spectrum being poorly produced photo frames. In the form of the Tonki, one young Italian couple has come up with an inexpensive and environmentally conscious solution.

The way it works is that you log into the Tonki website, upload images from your phone or your camera, you crop them, and then you place your order. A package will arrive with your cardboard picture frame inside, printed directly on a flatpacked piece of recycled material. Simply fold along the provided creases, pop out the props and display your everyday art casually at home or work.
