Zimbabwean Light shade 'Porcupine'

Our Porcupine Woven Light shade is made in Zimbabwe from the fronds of the Ilala Palm Tree (Hyphanae petersiana).
This common palm is found across Africa growing in dry areas making it a readily available raw material. 

This extremely versatile plant is the traditional raw material of choice for the majority of weaving across Africa. It is a natural cream colour so no dye is used in this product.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to it's unique shape, it is ideal for the light shade to be displayed on a lamp base and not from the ceiling.


Sizing: 28cm Height x 26cm Base Diameter x 14cm Top Diameter
