There is something uniquely noteworthy about the quality of handmade paper that a machine simply cannot reproduce. The look, texture and feel of it creates a sense of wonder and appreciation at the amazing capability of humanity. The natural beauty and the artisan dexterity with which this beautiful tie-dye lampshade is made encapsulates this notion and when lit the ambient light it produces is both delicate and primal.
