Often imitated but never equaled, this is the original repurposed fish trap pendant light, a much-loved light fixture that has become synonymous with Lanna Passa. Hand-woven by local artisans in the northern regions of Thailand, each bamboo basket is a flexible, lightweight, and graceful creation, perfectly suited for pendant lighting.

Whether hanging in the home, in a restaurant, or at a wedding, the subtle neutral tones of the bamboo shades create a serene atmosphere. They feel almost dream-like at times, especially swaying in the wind outdoors. Indoors, they’re just as beautiful, especially paired with a warm, soft bulb (Edison bulbs being our personal pick).

Optional plug-in pendant kits allow you to drape your light cords and hang the pendant shades anywhere you wish. No complicated installation; just plug them into an outlet and hang them up.

This style of light shade is also available with a thick rope cord in a farmhouse lighting fixture and as a black bamboo pendant light.

These beautiful bamboo shades pair wonderfully with our plug-in swag light kits. We have three styles to choose from: white, black, and natural. The natural style features a rope light cord sleeve, perfect for adding a little extra when draping the light cord from the outlet to your hanging position.

The length of the cord can also be customized. Generally, if you’re going for a swag lighting style, you’ll need a fairly long cord to reach from your electrical outlet to the hanging point. When selecting your swag light pendant kit, you’ll be prompted to enter cable lengths and more.
Whatever cable length you require, we’ve got you covered, and at no extra cost (within reason). If you need longer than, say, 10 meters, please shoot us a message first.

Finally, the plug type will be matched to the destination country. No worries about compatibility there; we’ve got that covered too.


The bamboo pendant shades can be hung indoors and outdoors, although if you plan on hanging them outdoors where they’re exposed to the weather, you’ll need to purchase a weather-proof cable set, as our pendant kits are not suitable for outdoor use.

The shades, however, are fine. You don’t necessarily need a pendant kit or bulb; you can hang the fish trap baskets as they are and let them sway happily in the breeze. Bamboo fish traps make beautiful garden decor, whether hanging from trees or strung along a patio or veranda.


Every pendant light is woven, crafted, packaged, and dispatched to you from northern Thailand. We ship worldwide, to most countries in the world. Standard shipping is free, with an express option also available at checkout. Typically, your pendant light will be at your door within:

  • Free shipping: 10–21 days
  • Express shipping: 5–12 days

Please allow for a few days of handling time too, as we put your light together before shipping out. 

We’re certain you’ll love your new light fixture, but if not, we also offer 30-day returns. Take a look at our FAQ page for more information.

I’m so pleased with this purchase. The shipment arrived super fast…surprising given it was coming from overseas. Super easy to shape. They look amazing in our backyard.

  2. First of the shipping was so fast! I couldn’t believe it. These pendant covers are stunning! They are exactly as pictured, very strong quality and they give off a beautiful lighting effect. We hung them in our pepper tree outside and they have stood up to unseasonably heavy rain and wind. They’re just perfect!

  5. The item matches the description and looks great. Giving 4 stars instead of 5 just because it was a little deformed for the packing, but still looks good.

  9. These are quite beautiful—simple, elegant, and allow plenty of light through without becoming harsh. The support from LannaPassa was terrific, helping me confirm that this would work with my existing lampcord and socket. It was easy to set up and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. LannaPassa exceeded my expectations in all regards, and I’m getting many complements on this new addition to our home décor.

  10. I ordered basket size B to replace two existing pendant shades and they are perfect! The ability to adjust the shape and size is great, I had a lot of fun trying out different options – it’s very easy! They are lightweight so I had to add a small wire to keep the shades on the existing pendant stem but that was easy. The shipping does take a while, especially in “these times”. My took a good 8 weeks to arrive but it was worth the wait.

  11. LOVE this lamp! I needed something for over my dining room table but there is no wiring for electrical. The plug in option worked perfectly and they even added a switch for me 🙂 highly recommend this shop
