The KUNI shade features vertical black and white stripes against natural undyed sisal. Create a statement in your living space, whilst introducing a calming, low light.
These lampshades are all woven by women of the Kamba tribe, a group renowned the world over for their exquisite handicrafts. Basketry is one of the crafts that the Kamba – one of Kenya’s largest tribes – are best known for. These weavers all belong to a fair trade cooperative and are are primarily farmers, largely relying on unpredictable rainfall to grow crops and rear livestock. Basket weaving has become a source of alternative income for these communities during the dry seasons, helping women support their families more comfortably.
Each lampshade comes with a thank you card from the weaving cooperative. Want to know more about the people behind the baskets? Meet the weavers here.
