For a lighting idea perhaps slightly unique or an interesting gift idea consider one of the fair trade lamps from easylighting.co.uk. These fair trade lamps are created in the Indonesian islands and subtly combine western style, natural materials and traditional craftsmanship. These lamps are available in a diverse range of colours.
The crinkle lidi lamps are inspired by the beautiful flowers that bloom all year round on the island of Bali. The lamps are made from palm leaf fronds and fabric on a metal frame. Because of the natural nature of the palm leaf fronds, the height of each lamp may vary slightly but will stand nearly a metre high. This lamp would look lovely positioned in the corner of a conservatory or a lounge. These brightly coloured lamps give off a warm glow and would create an attractive focal point in any room.
The crinkle fabric “kris” lamp is a design based on the traditional “kris” knife which is indigenous to the region of Indonesia. This lamp is available in 6 colours, orange, green, turquoise, red, white and purple.
