Our Story

My mother drew dogs on parchment candle shades with ink. As the animals shine through and look out at us intently, her personality and love also shines through.

When our son was born, I searched for lampshades for his bedroom, and couldn’t find any on the market which were alive for children, with engagingly drawn images. I recalled my mother’s approach and so the idea came to me to create my own.

Your memories will be in these shades as well and I hope you enjoy them.

Sustainability lies at the heart of all of our activities. In our manufacturing and packaging we use organic cotton, eco ink, acid-free ph-neutral tissue paper, eco boxes, paper bags and our labels and cards are plastic free.

We source, make, pack and deliver with the environment in mind and we are always seeking new ways to further reduce the impact of everything we do.

We want to help sustain the diversity of the countryside which inspired the countryside drawings on the lampshades, so 1.5% of each item sold will be donated to  MoorTrees Charity who grow trees from locally collected seeds and then use them to recreate woodland on Dartmoor and in South Devon.
