Batik and blanket stitch are a fine combination and when added to a product with a simple design, the mix becomes exemplary. The cylindrical shape, natural colour and hand-drawn pattern make a piece that seems both familiar and fresh at the same time. This lovely and versatile lampshade will suit decor ranging from scandi to boho to classic.
