The Barkcloth Collection
Barkcloth is an incredible fabric. 100% sustainable, handmade from tree bark by artisans in Uganda and predating weaving, it is the oldest fabrics known to man.
These lampshades have a lovely warm glow and add an interesting element of texture to any room. As the light shines through each piece, the structure of the fabric becomes visible. Showing the fingerprint of the tree and creating a stunning focal point.

All Barkcloth shades come with a duplex fitting and require shade carriers.
If needed please go to our Shade carriers page if you need any advice just get in touch - we're happy to help!
It’s important to note that Barkcloth has naturally occurring flaws – the process of creating the cloth can result in small holes, some are sewn up with local raffia. We think it’s these imperfections that make the shades even more special. All the shades will vary slightly in colour too - no two trees are the same!
