The Product – Red tweed lampshade from the Isle of Harris
World-renowned Harris Tweed fabric is governed by strict law. Only fabric hand-woven by the islanders at their home in the Outer Hebrides, made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides and finished there too, is worthy of the name. As such it is awarded the orb label from the Harris Tweed Authority. Our supplier, the Quirk lampshade-making studio, has considerable experience working with Harris Tweed fabric. They create smart, tailored drum shades and are listed as an official Harris Tweed Authority craft business. Embrace your Scottish connections or install a reminder of that fabulous trip to the Highlands and Islands.
The lampshade is made using genuine 100% wool Harris Tweed fabric. It has a rolled edge and is lined with white, rigid, flame retardant PVC. The shade can be used for ceiling pendant fittings with the ring at the top or can be turned around for use on a table or floor lamp base and is available in three sizes:
21cm high x 30cm diameter (best for small table lamps)
30cm high x 45cm diameter (best for large table lamps or floor lamps)
21cm high x 45cm wide (best for pendant shades where a shallow shade is preferable due to restricted ceiling height)
These lampshades do not require a shade carrier. The shade comes with an adjustable plastic ring that fits directly onto the bulb carrier of your table or floor lamp base or on to your ceiling pendant fitting. This can then be tightly screwed into place.
Recommended bulb: max 60W or Energy Saving 15W bulb.
A translucent diffuser to cut glare from beneath pendant fittings (only) is optional. Please select this from the drop-down on the product page, prior to checkout.
Lastly, an optional Harris Tweed orb label of authenticity (see detail in the product gallery) can be attached to the outer side of the shade at the seam. The label measures approximately 3.5cm x 6cm. Please indicate – via the drop-downs on the product page – your preferred fitting type. Please also indicate whether you would like the orb label affixed or not (to ensure this is affixed in the correct position).
