The inspiration behind the design was when Sarah stumbled upon the ferns growing at the waters edge of a lake at Scotney Castle in Kent. She was struck by the vibrant greens against the still millpond.
I love the texture and curls of the fern leaf or bracken and evokes memories of running wild in the woods in Staffordshire as a young child.
Made from digitally printed heavy panama cotton designed by For All We Know, the design is printed in small runs in a print studio in Sussex, England by Dan and Louise. Jo in Somerset crafts by hand the lampshade. 1 product, 1 designer, 4 skilled crafts people. Proudly made in Britain.
The lampbase is made by from Rubber wood which is a 'good wood' for various reasons; it is a Plantation wood which means there is no deforestation and is also a by-product of latex production which means it is resource efficient. The lamp base has a neat design which allows it to be folded flat for shipment and can be easily unfolded into position. Please note that the lampshade is made to order. Please allow 4 weeks for delivery. We will endeavour to speed this up if we can!
