Pleated Blue Banyan
Hand pleated by Craft Boat in Jaipur the Pleated Blue Banyan lampshade is completely unique. Craft Boat embraced the ancient art of paper making in Jaipur, Rajasthan where they make all their paper from recycled cotton. As the papers are individually hand marbled there maybe a little bit of variation in colour and pattern.
The pleated lampshades come in two very useful sizes. The Wall Light size which works well for most wall fittings as it is made with a candle clip fitting (at the top) The Petite size which is the ideal shape and size for a table lamp or bedside table has a utility/European fitting at the base of the lampshade (to fit with a light bulb) so ideal for the UK, European and many other countries as well. The Petite size sits perfectly with my Tall Glossy Lamps.
All Petite and any pairs of the Wall Light sized pleated lampshades will be sent to you (at no additional cost) in a beautiful handmade colourful box making it the ideal present.
The following describes the dimensions of each lampshade in the size drop down:

Light bulb requirements for the Pleated Lampshades:
Pleated Wall Light size: LED 3 Watt Candle Light Bulb, 250 Lumen - a very warm light.
These are equivalent to the old 20 Watt light bulb, they typically have a 20,000 hour life expectancy and use just 20% of the power of an old incandescent light bulb and produce significantly less heat.
Pleated Petite size: LED 3 Watt Golf Ball Light Bulb, 250 Lumen - a very warm light
These are equivalent to the old 25 Watt light bulb, they typically have a 20,000 hour life expectancy and use just 20% of the power of an old incandescent light bulb and produce significantly less heat.
