A traditionally handwoven Thai bamboo fishing trap, re-purposed into a beautifully minimalistic pendant light.
Various sizes available – For reference, the basket in the majority of pics is size C. Oblong is the natural shape but they can be made spherical and other shapes easily.
The basket is compressible/expandable like a concertina and can achieve many shapes and position – the oblong shape is the natural position/shape – the round shapes as shown in the listing pictures for example are achieved simply by compressing from each end, and tying the supplied string inside to pull taut as shown to then hold in desired position.
[ About ]
A classic example of Asian craftmanship, these fishing traps are handwoven from natural bamboo using techniques that are centuries old. We’ve added a simple yet precise hanging lamp holder that can be adjusted with an adjustable metal support bracket so that you can position your bulb anywhere inside the basket, along with a choice of ceiling rose to match your style/theme.
The basket can be opened/closed like a concertina to get a variety of shapes and fixed in position with string, from the long droplet style to a round circle.
‘Basket Only’ option includes the metal cord bracket and cord grips.
[ Cable length]
Length is cable from plug/ceiling plate, to bulb holder
SWITCH OPTIONS – ** Please note – the plug version (not ceiling/hardwired) does not have a switch on the cable as default. The light must be switched on and off at the plug outlet. A switch can be added by request to the black and white cable versions (just send a message to let us know how many cm from the plug you would like the switch positioned, we will also message buyers to ask) but unfortunately a switch is not able to be added to the natural rope style due to it’s thickness. The ceiling versions are hardwired and so no cable switch is needed as they use the light switch in your home already. **

[ Notes ]
○ The light bulb is not included. We recommend softer energy saving LED or weaker vintage style bulbs as seen in the pictures to protect the bamboo from heat damage.
○ As each piece is individually handmade they will differ slightly in size, shape and shade, and may have small marks and wear. The odd bamboo strand may be slightly frayed or snapped, but this does not affect the product, you can optionally trim / snip out and position other strands in it’s place – due to the handwoven nature and natural bamboo strands used, small imperfections like this are to be expected, but do not affect the design, shaping or use.
○ Oblong baskets will be folded/flattened for easier delivery but this has no effect on their shape or strength due to the unique design – simply filling out and ‘pumping’ a few times like an accordion will restore the original oblong shape.
