  • Editor's Note

    AAKS' Weaving for Change division is devoted to more than the gorgeous lamps it creates—their African partners are fairly compensated and provided with training and education to further their opportunities. The Oude Lamp features an age-old weaving technique where organic cotton and leather is wrapped around bunches of straw to create vibrantly-colored coils. Hand-dyed and handwoven, the Oude's natural cream, bright blue and orange palette adds elegance and levity to your space. Hang yours solo in your favorite reading area or in a cluster over a dining table.
