The story

Each lamp is designed in Paris and produced by youth of a marginalised gypsy community in the north of Albania .Felt is the result of energy transferred from a hand to wool. The wool is carefully selected, "opened" with a peculiar instrument, a primitive bow, with a string tied to a branch that shuffles the wool till it becomes fluffy like a cloud.  It 's then roughly shaped with water and soap and left to rest. It is fitted on a shape made in a very, very special wood and rubbed thoroughly with soap till it becomes a thin regular felt. Again it is left to dry naturally on the form. A lot of energy, a lot of time. The result is overwhelming.

Included 220 cm textile cable, E27 white ceramic socket and a 5 watt LED lamp (470Lm) and plug (European). The model "long" comes with a switch.
