With a tribal tooth design in black on natural sisal, the MKUU lampshade will bring a sense of organic style to any space, creating a soothing, soft light.
Handwoven in indigenous sisal fibres, these lampshades are produced in Eastern Kenya by members of a fair trade weaving group. These weavers are all women of the Kamba, a tribe renowned for their creativity and handicrafts - and especially basket weaving. The majority of these weavers are primarily farmers, dependant on rainfall to sow and grow crops, or rear livestock. Basket weaving within a cooperative provides a vital second income for these people during times of drought, helping women support their families more sustainably.
Each lampshade comes with a thank you card from the weaving co-operative that made yours. Want to know more about the wonderful women behind the shades? Meet the weavers here.
