The jury is no longer out. Bamboo, Wicker and Palm Leaf lighting is truly better for you as compared to wood or wood and fabric lamp-shades. Here's why.
Bamboo or wicker is not as inflammable as wood because it does not have the resins that make wood catch fire readily. Wood lamps are a big fire-risk. So even if you forgetfully left it on for a few days while on an out-of-town trip,chances are it wouldn't burn your home to ground, while wood may.
If you love handmade rustic things, bamboo is the way to go.Bamboo lamps can only be handwoven and you can find literally millions of rustic chic designs based on the community which weaves them. You can put down your money knowing that some artisan somewhere got benefited.
We recommend bamboo and wicker lighting. It is stylish, fun, contemporary, affordable and sustainable.
