Our lampshades are available in two distinct collections.
Our block-printed shades come in tapered or drum styles. The textile - a high quality, tightly-woven Russian linen - is block-printed by us, the artists, in our Dorset workshop (in much the same way we print our cushion covers). Once the fabric has been printed, cured (dried) and fixed (by ironing), it is sent to a shade craftsman based near London where it is cut to size and skilfully transformed into a professionally-made, hand-rolled lampshade.
At present, the block-printed collection features four of our most popular designs, 'Varx', 'Nightjars', 'Bloodlines' and 'Ship in a Battle'. Each block-printed lampshade is unique - although shades may be of the same dimensions and shape, and feature the same design, the nature of block-printing means no two will be identical.
Our commercially-printed lampshades are also available in tapered or drum styles. This collection is the fruit of an ongoing collaboration with a Lancashire-based company, experts in digital printing. Having one of our patterns reproduced in this way allows us to play with scale, and this particular collection features our 'Ode to the Ash' design enlarged from the original block print. These shades show off the beauty and character of the artist's mark-making, and the textile used is a high grade linen.
All our lampshades have a universal fitting, and are backed using a flame retardant material. If you choose to purchase one, please use an energy saving eco bulb if possible!
