Banyan Table Lamp
Natural Beauty, Built Responsibly:
Graced with the intricacy of overlapping, hand-dyed fossilized banyan leaves, this 15-inch piece is entirely hand made from sustainable materials using fair trade practices, and is built to a high standard.
The amazing lamp shade material is refined through a process of drying and fossilizing banyan leaves that lasts more than four months and sees about 20% of the leaves survive the ordeal. Banyan leaves are thoroughly dried throughout most of that period, then hand rubbed to remove the chlorophyll, leaving only the leaf's skeletal form. This form is stained with organic dye, carefully placed on a heat resistant backing, and then hand trimmed before receiving a coat of sealant to maintain integrity.
All of this beauty is attached to a powder-coated wrought iron frame, ensuring that the entire presentation remains rigid and stable as any formidable decorative article should.
