Matthew Sowter at Saffron Frameworks

Matthew Sowter is the craftsman behind Saffron Frameworks, a company who make hand-built bicycle frames from a London workshop. His passion and love for the craft is evident in the care he takes and the exquisite bicycles that come out of his workshop.

Matthew works closely with his each of his customers to understand what they want from their bicycle before designing a frame to suit their geometry and cycling goals. He works mainly with steel tube sets to craft these made-to-order bicycles through a variety of processes, including cutting, brazing, aligning, polishing and painting. 

 Saffron Frameworks build just a few frames each year, so each frame can be treated with the same love and care.
