In the seventies, major girl power was still in its infancy and was mainly manifested through self-learning. Evening classes were very popular and many homes were adorned with the proud results of macramé and pottery courses; chunky, wonky bowls and owls on a twig were a right of passage and many of us would not be where we are today without these symbols of determination and drive. They were important times. The skill that macramé and pottery demands is immense and today it is recognised and appreciated in ceramics. Macramé, it seems, slipped by the wayside and got unfairly labelled as old-fashioned. However, this handmade lampshade is a catalyst for change once more. Firstly, the simple-looking design belies the artisan’s amazing prowess and dexterity and secondly this large, pretty and circular lampshade in natural string has finally come of age. It is a stunning homage to women’s history. Feminine, it is reminiscent of a ’20’s Charleston dress, strong with a respectful nod to the seventies, finely tuned with a sufficient spoonful of the traditional and seasoned a generous pinch of contemporary boho spirit. It adds warmth, visual interest and kick-ass beauty to any room.
