WHO MADE YOUR LIGHT SHADE?
Our woven baskets, shades, and fans from Ghana, are made by a talented group of artisans based in the Upper East Region, under the Burkina Fasso border. The baskets are made with indigenous Veta Vera grass which grows abundantly in this hot, dry area.
The co-operative we have partnered with is led by Agana who works closely with the weavers.

Please note, this product is made out of a natural fibre and it is highly recommended that an LED bulb is used with these shades. No bulb, ceiling rose, cabling or other electrical components are included.
We take great care when packing your shade- but your light shade may arrive folded or slightly out of shape. If this occurs, the Ghanaian light shades can be easily brought back to life with a quick steam using a steamer or steam setting on your iron. Steam the light shade and manually shape. Please be careful as the straw may be hot.
To clean your Ghanaian light shade, simply wipe clean with a damp cloth or sponge, remove most of the moisture with a dry towel and leave to air dry naturally.
Avoid placing your light shade in direct sunlight as this may cause some of the colours to fade.
