Time to be bold and embrace the purple! if you fancy something striking go for this lampshade.

This purple and white stitched and marbled effect Shibori lampshade is part of the Orimaki collection from Romor Designs.

It was inspired by the panels on Japanese kimono silk and is a combination of two traditional Japanese stitch techniques (Ori nui and Maki nui) with another technique called bomaki which creates the marbled pattern.

It is handmade using vintage French linen sourced at brocante fairs in France that has been carefully stitched and compressed. The fabric is then mordanted in alum to improve colourfastness and dyed with Logwood extract, a natural dye made from the bark of a tree to give a rich, deep purple.

All fabrics used are handmade by the maker. This is a one of a kind piece, no-one else will have one that is exactly the same.

* Please note: Due to the handmade nature of this item the exact pattern and colour you receive will be similar to but not exactly the same as the one you see featured.

This lampshade is ideal where a bold lampshade is needed. The marbling patterns and stitch adds interest and character to the play of light this shade casts when lit. Tends to a darker grey shade over time.
