Handmade in the Philippines with real cocoa leaves. These handcrafted table lamps look particularly enchanting in bedrooms, entryways, living rooms, reading nooks, or any unique space in need of illumination. By purchasing this product, you are also contributing to the livelihood of our artisanal craftsmen. For best results, we recommend using a compact fluorescent light bulb of 13 watts or lower.
The Fortune lamp gets its name because of the sturdy bamboo legs as bamboo is a sign of good luck in many Asian cultures. Featuring real cocoa leaves and a simple square design, this lamp is a true show piece and conversation starter.
Our lampshades are made from fossilized cocoa leaves. These leaves are collected from the cacao plant, the same source for scrumptious chocolate. They are then fossilized over a three- to four-month period. Our artisan partners rub the chlorophyll off each leaf by hand so that only the skeleton remains. This labor-intensive process is done without the use of corrosive chemicals. Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is organically dyed. Each leaf absorbs dye differently, so every one of our table lamps is utterly unique and features different hues or shades.
