Care and Handling

  • All lampshades are carefully handcrafted by Tholu Bommalata artisans with natural leather. The beauty of a handcrafted product lies in its imperfections. Please treat minor imperfections as part of the art form.
  • The lampshades are made with high quality powder-coated frames.
  • Since the leather used is a natural material, it reacts to weather conditions: the leather stiffens in extreme heat, and softens at very lower temperatures. It is best to avoid both extremes.
  • Keep indoors and don’t expose to direct sunlight – color may fade with time, if used outdoors.
  • Lampshades are not washable – to clean, wipe with dry cloth. Avoid direct contact with water.
  • Material: Parchment leather with Powder coated metal frame
  • Type of holder: E14
  • Recommended bulb: E14 LED Warm White | 3 or 5 watts
  • Length of wire included: 1 m
  • Type of plug: 2-pin
  • Switch type: Rocker Switch
  • Wipe the lamp clean with a dry cloth.

Inspiration & History


Tholubommalata: The art of light & shadows
This ancient artform from Andhra Pradesh was once an imperative storytelling instrument for the country.
Centuries before radio, TV or newspapers made their way, wandering entertainers and peddlers would sing ballads and narrate mythological stories using handcrafted leather puppets.
The puppets had tiny holes that allowed light to shimmer through them like jewels.
Each lamp is handcrafted using authentic techniques & tools to keep the originality of this tradition alive.
