In addition to the high quality materials, these lamps are manufactured following fair trade practices meaning that all workers have access to a dignified working environment, living wages, health-care, continuing education, and basic housing. All lamps are Eco-friendly, being composed of renewable and/or recycled materials with food based dyes and low-impact finishes. Below you will find some examples. The leaves that make up the shades are collected, cured and dyed. Then, they are attached to a durable plastic backer and stitched onto a wrought iron frame for a one-of-a-kind look.
