Indian Kantha Embroidery | drum lampshade


22cm tall, 35cm wide

17cm tall, 20cm wide


Kantha embroidery is a basic running stitch traditionally used to patch old saris together to make a thick quilt. The clear PVC lining means that the stiches are also visible on the inside of the shade. I have more of this fabric so do get in touch if you would like a different size. 


Both sizes can be used as a lampshade or as a ceiling shade​.
