Ernest Thompson’s Sombraje Shutters

Sombraje, or “branch covered screen,” is a centuries-old regional tradition of creating window treatments from gathered twigs  and branches. Ernest Thompson’s Sombraje shutter collection utilizes salt cedar, cottonwood, willow, and hand-peeled willow twigs that are hand gathered, individually cut to size, and individually pieced into sturdy, finished basswood panel frames.  Basswood is an excellent choice for framing as it is a hardwood, but is also light in weight.  It easily takes either a painted or stained finish.  Whether you choose all natural twigs or add painted twigs in colors to match your decorating scheme, this elegant addition to your decor will definitely bring nature into your space! These shutters will look good in your office, too.

Sombraje twig shutters are definitely an excellent choice of window treatment for Albuquerque, Santa Fe and/or Taos homes.  And, you can continue this design in other home decor applications such as paneled screens, furniture, mirrors and cabinet doors.  The Ernest Thompson Sombraje Collection is proudly Made in America in their Albuquerque workshop.
