Feature Friday - Lampada on Etsy

Happy Friday; time to feature another shop found using the undiscovered feature of the Pounce tool!

Today's featured shop is Lampada. The pictured item, Latin Handmade Coffee Filter Lampshade, contains the following information in its description:

"All my lampshades are individually handmade using recycled coffee filters in their natural colors or dyed with vegetables and spices in a very natural way. Each lampshade is special because the process from beginning to end comes from scratch. I cut the wire cloth and tie it together by hand to make the shade of the lampshade. I dry, clean, dye (or not) and cut the coffee filters also by hand. Finally, I weave each coffee filter into the frame. A coat of varnish protects and gives durability to the lampshade. "

A truly unusual and beautiful product; maybe one will find its way into your home in the near future?

Peace, Judi

OK those are insanely cool! What a large number of hours of work must go into making even just one. Great feature!
