Have you been searching for an accent light fixture that’s as unique as the rest of your home décor? Our blue banyan table lamp is a stunning choice. Each lamp is handcrafted from fossilized banyan leaves, which come from one of the most venerated and beautiful trees in India. The banyan tree has a unique root system that grows above ground, and it is commonly used to create bonsai. Banyan leaves are round in shape with pointed tips and a sheer appearance. We dry the leaves over a period of three to four months before hand-rubbing the chlorophyll so that only the leaf skeleton remains. This labor-intensive process involves no corrosive chemicals, and the leaves are then stained with organic dyes to create a myriad of magical hues.
Due to the handcrafted nature of our blue banyan table lamp, each item is one-of-a-kind. Once the banyan leaves are stained, we adhere them to a heat-resistant backing. Our artisanal partners cut each leaf to ensure that none of them overlap. We then use a strong sealant to ensure the stability and integrity of the handmade lampshade. Every banyan leaf absorbs dye different, so you may see many variations in blue when you receive your new table lamp. Enjoy your lamp to the fullest by using a compact fluorescent light bulb of 13 watts or lower. Please contact us with any concerns or questions, so a member of our friendly customer service team may provide further assistance.
