Frame shop: textile framing (Guatemalan huipil)


Does anyone have a recommendation for a framing shop in or near Berkeley (we’d go as far as SF) that would do a fantastic job on framing textiles, in this case an embroidered Guatemalan huipil.  I’ve seen such textiles framed before (like at Peet’s back in the day) and we are now in the circumstance of seeking such work ourselves. Any ideas?  Other recommendations are old, and not specific to textile art.  Thanks!

Lars at North Berkeley Frame on Shattuck is fantastic.  Among many other things, I've had silk panels framed there and he did a wonderful job.   

The framing shop in Montclair (coincidentally, 2 doors down from Peet's) is where we take all of our art.  They do a fantastic job.  I haven't needed to frame a textile but I would trust them.  If the textile is incredibly valuable/antique, then you may want to consider calling an auction house to see if they have a recommendation.
