Forest Collection: 'Caterpillar' Lampshade
An early addition to our series of new designs from our Forest collection, the 'Caterpillar' lampshade was inspired by the movement of caterpillars. Using merino and blue-faced leicester wool roving offcuts from our 'Tendril' throws that would otherwise have gone to waste, we have re-purposed these materials in a creative pattern that forms an integral part of our Forest collection.
This classic lampshade shape has been given a contemporary update by its unique combination of materials and wool pattern. It is wonderfully tactile, great for softening the look of modern interiors and is also a practical light source.
Each unique lampshade is carefully handwoven in our Oxford studio using only the finest materials. The lampshade begins with a warp of clear monofilament to create a transparent but backdrop for the wool and cotton yarn mixes and earthy colours of merino and blue-faced leicester wool roving. Working with two types of wool roving means we balance the texture of the un-dyed blue-faced leicester with the creamy softness of the merino. Once woven, we assemble the lampshade in our Oxford studio and finish it with a hand stitching to our exacting standards.
Our 'Caterpillar' lampshade is 100% handwoven with earthy colours and textures. Inspired by the natural world, this collection interprets the movements, behaviours, textures and colours of the plants, creatures and mini-beasts found amongst the trees and on the forest floor. This evolving collection contains handwoven pieces that have their own unique colours, textures, patterns and finish which you can specify.
Each step in our process reflects our commitment to craftsmanship and time-honoured weaving traditions. We also believe in sourcing all our materials from within the UK to minimise our carbon footprint and use natural fibres whenever possible as we aim to cultivate a more sustainable practice.
