These lantern lampshades are handcrafted by the Kojima family in Kyoto. Made with a patchwork of washi paper, these lampshades highlight the material and its fibers beautifully, adding a refreshing twist to the timeless but traditional craft.
The Kojima family has dedicated 10 generations to crafting Japanese paper lanterns. Their lanterns are called "Kyo-Chochin", meaning "Lanterns from Kyoto", and can be distinguished by the use of horizontal bamboo rings to create the frame, or "bones", of the lantern.
This lampshade comes in two sizes:
Ellipse:50cm x 18cm (19.5inch x 7inch)
Round:38cm x 36cm (15inch x 14inch)
For those who need a different size, we are happy to work with the Kojima family to customize your very own lampshade.
Disclaimer This lamp does not include lightbulbs, but does have a metal fixture at the top for easy installment.
