Open End Lampshade

Regular price £65.00 Sale

Casting soft contours of multiple lutindzi plaits throughout any room, our beautifully shaped open ended lampshade is a unique find.

Technique of Production

The plaiting technique, used since Gone Rural's inception, is used to create some our most popular pieces. It involves using a dyed fibre, such as lutindzi, which is braided into long strands. These plaits are then woven, coiled, shaped, and sewn together to create beautiful products such as our placemats.


Lutindzi - is sourced directly from the mountains of Swaziland. It is sustainably harvested by cutting above the root and is proven to be waterproof and stain-resistant due to its strong, waxy finish.
