Blue And Lime Silk Ikat Lampshade


Description

40cm Blue And Lime Silk Ikat Lampshade

These lovely fresh feeling hand gathered lampshades will give off clean crisp light when lit.

Ikat is a technique used to pattern textiles that employs resist dyeing on the yarns prior to dyeing and weaving the fabric. In ikat the resist is formed by binding individual yarns or bundles of yarns with a tight wrapping applied in the desired pattern before being woven into cloth. This laborious process results in a subtle bleeding of the edges which gives woven ikat its unique quality. Our lampshades are made from the finest silk ikat from Uzbekistan where it is hand-woven on small looms.

Use medium sized lamp bases to display this lampshade - anything from 35cm - 45cm in height.

Dimensions:

  • Top: 26cm
  • Bottom: 40cm
  • Height: 25cm

Duplex fitting to fit on a shade carrier of 5" - 6" depending on how high you would like the shade to sit.
