The Product: Indian, block-print cotton lampshades in blue and putty
These pleated, hand block-print cotton lampshades are made in India. The lively pattern, printed onto cotton voile in a palette of warm putty grey and vibrant blue, adds contrast and detail to any setting.
Sustainability and education are at the heart of shade-makers, Samarkand Design, whose focus is on improving the lives of each of the artisans they work with, building lasting and positive relationships with suppliers based on the principles of fairness and social responsibility.
Elegant, tapered shades in larger sizes work well with slim-necked lamp bases such as ceramic, oriental urns or bottle silhouettes. The smaller sizes team perfectly with simple, candlestick lamp bases. Either way, keep the lamp base simple and unfussy. Allow the decorative pattern to – quite literally- shine! Make a statement with the larger size in a spacious, high-ceilinged entrance hall or team a pair of the smaller shades on a console table.
Try Oka for metal or ceramic lamp bases with a classic silhouette to team with these Indian block-printed cotton lampshades.

These Indian block-print cotton lampshades are available in two sizes:
25cm (base diameter/widest point) x 18cm (height) x 15cm (across the top). This size of lampshade works best displayed on small bases or tall, thin lamp bases. All of these shades come with a fixed E27 fitting.
45cm (base diameter/widest point) x 29cm (height) x 29cm (across the top). This size of lampshade works best displayed on medium lamp bases (anything from 40cm to 50cm high). These larger lampshades have a duplex fitting designed to go on a shade carrier from 5″ – 7″ (depending on how high you would like the lampshade to sit). Please note which size shade carrier you require – 5″, 6″ or 7″ – in the notes at checkout.
