Features fossilized cocoa leaves that are hand placed on a standard UL lamp backing, laminated using a non-toxic adhesive and formed into a cylinder shape. The shade is handstitched onto a powder coated, wrought iron frame.

We are a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council; a coalition of manufacturers, retailers, and designers dedicated to raising awareness and expanding the adoption of environmentally sustainable practices across the home furnishings industry.
Our products are manufactured using materials that are sustainably harvested, non-toxic dyes, and water-based finishes.
The leaves used in our products are either collected after a tree naturally sheds them or are plucked from a living tree. In either case, the plant isn’t harmed. Additionally, the purchase of the leaves we use provides a secondary income to the framers who grow and care for plants.
We view ourselves as partners with our manufacturers and continuously exchange ideas on how to improve production, product quality, and the health and well-being of the artisans that work to create the products we sell. We visit our manufacturers on a regular basis to ensure that our core mission is being followed.
Our products are produced in the Philippines, a country that is fast growing, and progressive on ensuring workers’ rights. It is also a country where many companies are run by women and their entrepreneurial efforts are encouraged.
The artisans who make our pieces are paid a living wage, provided quality housing, have access to continuing education, and work under dignified and safe conditions.
The lamp frames are constructed from wrought iron that is hand-manipulated and welded into the artisanal shapes. It is then sanded and finished with a powder coat.
Each leaf is placed by hand on a standard UL lamp backing. The backing adds durability and protects the shade from damage.
