Banner Installation

War Torn Flags Photoshoot

We were excited to be apart of this, as most of our flags are either made from scratch or maintenance and restoration type works. Theatre Props intentions with our supplied hand sewn flags were quite the opposite; they did a fantastic job in transforming the new flags in to the required distressed look.
