This colourful pendant shade was produced by an extremely artistic craftswoman working within a weaving cooperative in rural Kenya, and created to her very own design. Unique, exquisite and hand woven with love - the bright pink stripes of UMEME will brighten any interior. Bring a beautiful sense of texture and ethical ambience to your interiors with this colourful handwoven sisal lampshade.
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 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 little information about the weaving cooperative. Want to know more about the people behind the baskets? Meet the weavers here.
