Natural and light, sustainable rattan creates a tactile and appealing material. The eye -catching basketry of our large Beru rattan shade is inspired by traditional Indonesian fishing baskets. The appealing design casts pretty shadows when lit and the generous proportions make this a beautiful feature shade. Style in multiples if in a large space, or create a stand alone focal point.
This shade can fit over an pre -existing light fixing. Indonesia has a rich heritage of weaving rattan; an important cultural tradition was to weave rattan into Apais, these are decorative matts that were used to dress traditional long houses. Baskets were also woven with specific purposes in mind such as washing, carrying and storing food. These traditions and techniques are still very much alive today, in both traditional and new forms and designs. Our lamp shades and baskets are hand woven using the same ancient Indonesian weaving making skills. We are careful to ensure the rattan used in production of our products is cultivated sustainably.
