    About RukuLampshades

    On Etsy since 2016

    Handrolled lampshades using only the finest materials and most beautiful patterned fabrics, all whilst supporting British businesses where possible

    I have always loved patterns and colour and making things. I used to make my own pencil cases when I was in primary school; I remember being particularly proud of one I made from a used date tray.

    For years I've had a bit of a thing for fabrics, but not being an expert with the sewing machine left me unable to quench my fabric thirst. As an ideas person, I had been thinking of ways I could buy fabric and make something beautiful without the need to be a ninja with a needle and thread.

    One night the idea of making lampshades popped into my head. It ticked all of my creative boxes, and so Ruku was born.

    I'm very passionate about keeping waste to a minimum, which is why I try my hardest to ensure that all or most of my packaging is recycled and/or recyclable whilst still remaining as protective as possible.

    Supporting the British economy, especially small businesses is also very important to me. The Ruku lampshade frames themselves are manufactured in the UK and I buy a good amount of my fabric from fabric shops and haberdasheries in my local area.

      I'm a free spirit with a passion for the coast and moorland. I have a strong love of pattern, colour, clean lines and gorgeous fabric - making lampshades was a no-brainer! I have dachshund called Roo, a horse called Jack and a rabbit called Peter!
