NATURAL & HANDWOVEN

As each piece is individually handmade they will differ slightly in size, shape and shade, and may have small marks and wear. The odd bamboo strand may be slightly frayed or snapped, but this does not affect the product, you can optionally trim / snip out and position other strands in it’s place – due to the handwoven nature and natural bamboo strands used, small imperfections like this make each piece unique, but do not affect the design, shaping or use.

INDOOR / OUTDOOR

The natural baskets/pendants themselves can be used both indoors and outdoors, although we recommend a separately purchased cable set made specifically for all weather if using outdoors, as our cable sets are made for indoor use only.

FAQ

How are these black bamboo pendant lights dyed?

We personally hand dye each and every pendant shade. First, mixing dyes with water and bringing to the boil in a large outdoor vat, before submerging the bamboo baskets in the dye. After leaving for a few minutes to soak in the pigment, the baskets are removed and hung to dry outdoors in direct sunlight.

What light bulb works best with a black pendant light?

Our black pendant lights are compatible with various types of E26 and E27 thread type bulbs, providing flexibility in choosing the desired brightness, color and general ambience. There is no right or wrong choice when it comes to choosing a light bulb, it simply depends on the type of vibe you wish to create.

Vintage-style Edison bulbs with exposed filaments can add a touch of retro or industrial charm to the black pendant shade - our personal choice. LED bulbs are available in various color temperatures, ranging from warm to cool. Warm white LEDs can provide a similar warmth to incandescent bulbs, while cool white or daylight LEDs produce a brighter and crisper light.

Can you dye bamboo different colors?

Yes, it is possible to dye bamboo in different colors using various techniques. Dyeing bamboo allows for a wide range of creative possibilities in terms of design and customization, some of which you can see in our store. For example, we have a collection of two-tone bamboo pendant cluster lights with the lower section dyed a bright color. We can also create custom shades and designs - feel free to contact us if you have an idea in mind.

  4. We love this lampshade! Beautifully made and feels robust. Highly recommend. Clear instructions, incl. Pics, about how to secure a different shape with the lampshade (but we didn’t do this). Robustly packaged and clear communication. Took covid time to arrive but was quicker than I expected. Only thing missing was a dispatch message for the last leg of the postal journey (but made a nice surprise).
