Xhosa Reed Lampshape - Bell


These structural lampshades are handwoven by a collective of Xhosa women in the eastern cape of South Africa. The internal structure is made from a strong powder coasted wire with the exterior woven from river reed native to the area. Their simple shape demonstrates the beauty in handwoven basketry - strong and sturdy they will hang beautifully in any room.

The Xhosa women who weave this collection of beautiful baskets work as part of a community project - providing them with employment and continuing to empower the skill of basket weaving in their local township. 

*Wire fitting inside - cord & globe not included.

Xhosa Reed Bell Lampshade measures 42cm diameter at base x 55cm high.
