Enjoy traditional handmade silhouettes in the modern day.
Silhouettes are romantic, whimsical, historical - and are still part of our culture after hundreds of years. Bring these iconic hand-made portraits into your family, your event, or your love of history.
A detailed Portrait made in a rare way
Silhouettes are miniature profile portraits. The profiles shown on this website are cut freehand with scissors – without drawing first, or creating by machine, or tracing any shadow. Silhouette profile cutting has a long history which has unfolded over 400 years - yet it is available to you today.
