About orikomi

Sales 1,601
On Etsy since 2013

Eco-friendly and simply crafted origami lamps made by Ana and Carmo

The brand was initially created in November 2013 as a pop-up store, with the main goal to raise funds for a non-profitable organization – Adobe for Women (aimed to support 20 women to build their own adobe houses). In January 2014, having the brand become so successful, the founders Ana Morgado and Carmo Caldeira decided to continue with Orikomi and it turned out to be the best decision they have ever made.

The Orikomi products are carefully handcrafted in Lisbon, Portugal, using high quality paper and having a great variety of colours and possible conjugations.
Orikomi lamps are a statement of love for the planet. These lamps are eco-friendly, require a low energy consumption (can only be used with LED or energy saving bulb) and are totally recyclable.

Since 2019 Orikomi offers a carbon free shipping. The brand started a partnership with Carbonfund.org, a company that ensures the offset of Orikomi shipping carbon footprint by supporting projects such as the Amazon forest conservation or the contaminated water treatment in Kenya.

Following up this carbon-free shipping initiative, Orikomi also provides an ecological packaging, using only compostable and recycled materials.

Since its creation Orikomi sells worldwide, through several shops with the largest volume of sales taking place in Europe and in countries such as USA and Australia. Orikomi has already been featured in several websites, blogs and international magazines.​

FAQ's BEFORE BUYING

WHAT CAN YOU FIND IN A ORIKOMI BOX?
Orikomis are shipped mounted in a cardboard box. Product comes with Instructions and Ethical Statement.

DO I NEED TO BUY THE CORD SET?
You can buy the cord set from us or use one that you already have. If you have your own standard cord set don't worry, our lampshade will fit perfectly.

DOES THE CORD SET WORK WITH OVERSEAS LIGHT BULBS?
The ceiling lamps cord sets are compatible with any electrical system. The table lamps have an EU plug, so if you live in a country that uses another type of
electrical plugs (for example, Australia or US), you just have to use an adapter.

WHAT TYPE OF LIGHT BULB SHOULD I USE AND WHAT WOULD BE THE MAXIMUM WATTAGE?
If you buy one of our cord sets you will have to use an E27 light bulb. The lamp should ONLY be used with an energy saving light bulb (or any similar fixtures with low heat generation like LED). Regarding the light's temperature, we recommend you to use a 3000k bulb (warm white). For intensity we recommend 900lm / 15W LED but you can use lamps with more intensity.

HOW MUCH LIGHT DO THE LAMPSHADES ALLOW OR BLOCK?
Our lampshades allow the light to pass through the paper when the light is on, however light intensity may vary depending on paper colours.

HOW ACCURATE ARE THE COLOURS IN THE PICTURES?
Colours may appear slightly different in photos and on different screens. Unfortunately we can not control it perfectly when taking the photos.

FAQ's AFTER BUYING

HOW TO INSTALL?
You will have the paper instructions in your cardbox.

HOW TO CLEAN?
You can easily clean your Orikomi with a feather duster.
