The Kalima lampshade only allows the light to shine through at a subdued level on the sides and is therefore perfect for illuminating dining tables or a cozy reading corner from above. It also fits particularly well in weather-protected areas in the garden, where it creates a tropical atmosphere with its boho look.

Thanks to the sturdy metal frame and the robust banana fiber, Kalima always keeps its shape, but never seems heavy or bulky. This is ensured by the filigree woven cords and fringes made of raffia.

The lampshade is available in three different sizes and is delivered without bulbs and cables. However, these are available at any hardware store in your preferred color and length.

SOEJI products are artfully crafted unique pieces. Due to hand manufacturing and natural variations in materials, they may vary slightly in size, color and shape.

Main material: raffia

The lampshades are made from plant fibers. They therefore smell and feel wonderfully natural.

Bast (Corypha utan) occurs naturally in the steppe and forest areas of Southeast Asia. The plant renews its leaves about every two years and sheds the old ones, which are then collected by people, dried in the sun for a few days to weeks and, depending on the desired degree of browning, made into wickerwork. The relative rarity and the higher processing effort make this material slightly more expensive compared to other plant fibers. While it is hardly known in Europe, the material has proven itself in Southeast Asia among the local population in the form of all kinds of everyday objects and is very popular due to its pleasantly soft but robust texture.

Other materials: metal frame, banana fiber

This lampshade is handmade in Java, Indonesia.
