The biggest challenge we have is to transfer initial discarded fan guards in a range of half finished crafted products. The fan guards are collected, sanded, painted, bended, weaved and finished for shipping.
Once in Europe we have a final quality check. Afterwards we add CE certification electrical components, as well the final packaging.
Each lamp shade is unique and limited. It comes with its unique imperfections. Combining an industrial looking metal fan guard with the natural rattan weavings lights up a tradition of authentic Philippine craft and social entrepreneurship.
