Our Story

A builder turned picture framer. 

Mulbury's owner Gerard Melder was previously a builder by trade in the 1970's & 80's.

He saw endless amounts of timber and other materials being thrown out on a daily basis. As environmental awareness began to increase in the 1990's, he thought that there is surely a way to recycle the timber he saw going to waste. 

In his backyard shed in Bentleigh East, Melbourne, Gerry started a part-time project of making picture frames from all the timber from his building sites and started selling the frames at local markets around Melbourne and country Victoria. 

In 1994, Mulbury was born. Over 25 years later, Mulbury continues making these recycled wooden picture frames.
