Organic Lighting: Eco-Friendly Eangee Lamps Made of Leaves
EANGEE ORGANIC LIGHTING
Handcrafted lamps from Eangee
We recently bought a butterfly tree lamp made by Eangee Home Design at a local art museum gift shop, and we couldn't be more delighted with our purchase.
Like all of Eangee's handcrafted lamps, ours is made of real leaves that have been colored with organic dyes and affixed to an all-natural base by artisans in the Philippines.
Although Eangee lighting isn't too too hard to find, you can't just buy it anywhere. Only retailers that meet Eangee's fair trade standards may sell the company's products.

How Eangee Lamps Are Made
Eangee artisans select, cut and dye leaves native to the Philippines. Then they meticulously arrange and layer them on natural frames or panels. These panels are then stitched into place.
Types of leaves used by Eangee craftspeople include alibangbang (butterfly tree) leaves, banyan leaves and cocoa leaves.
Other renewable materials contained in Eangee lamps include bamboo, abaca rope, nito vine, durian fruit fiber and found wood.
The butterfly tree lamp is fashioned upon a bamboo frame. Several color combinations are available.
Where to Get Eangee Lamps
Eangee only sells its products through retailers that provide a safe, quality work environment as well as just benefits and wages for their employees--standards Eangee itself adheres to in regard to its artisans.
