Each lampshade is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece, adorned from raffia and textiles waste producing beautiful bright colours and intricate details. Each lampshade is a unique expression of its artist who wove it.
Crafted from raffia and recycled textiles, each lampshade is handwoven and comes with a 2-metre black woven flex cable, black fitting, and ceiling rose. The E27 bulb-compatible lamp holder awaits your choice of bulb (not included).
