The lampshades are made using a high quality flame retardant PVC. The frames are made with a 39mm European ring fitting with a 29mm UK reducing ring already fitted that will pop in and out if needed. Meaning all lampshades are suitable for both UK or European lamps or pendant light fittings.
Three layers of materials are used to make the lampshades; the lining, the PVC, then the vintage silk scarf. This allows the silk scarf on the outside of the shade to maintain its vibrant colours. Please be aware however, that no light permeates through the side of the shade. The light is directional so will reflect off the lining giving you a wonderful glow from the top and bottom of the shade. The amount of light from the lampshade will depend on the size of the shade you order, i.e. the bigger the shade, the more light you will receive. The colour of the lining complements the silk scarf.
