Blue Silk Ikat Lampshade
This handmade lampshade features traditional Ikat design in blue & white colours. This is a truly bright choice that will bring freshness to your home decor. The modern interpretation of the Ikat design will add a pop of interest to any room.
Traditionally, hand-crafted Ikat fabric was a symbol of wealth and power. Some cultures believe that the fabric itself is endowed with mystical powers because it takes great skill and a lot of time to create.
We only use a hand-woven silk Ikat fabric. It consists of 50% natural silk on the right side and 50% cotton as a base. The fabric itself is very narrow so we can only produce small lampshades (dia 20 cm). We have to exclude some areas with imperfections very carefully. That makes the using of this rare fabric even more complicated but the result is just stunning.
Interior Design Tips
This unique Ikat lampshade will transform your room into a cheerful and welcoming retreat with an ethnic flavour.

Unlike many typical Ikat patterns, this one has only bright blue & white colours that make it perfect for Mediterranean style as well. This table lamp shade can easily match any home decor, whether contemporary or more traditional.
