Stark White Silk Shantung - Dull finish with medium slub texture

102 Styrene White No Fabric/Vinyl Only - Finished with plain white tape on the top and bottom

104 Silk Elegance Eggshell

Bamboo

Camel

Black

Silk Elegance is our most formal fabric. It can be used anywhere, but works great in more formal setting such as living rooms, bedrooms, and formal offices. Where the #101 Silk Shantung has a dull finish and medium slub, this fabric has a bit of a sheen and silk texture without the noticeable slub.

More toward brown, with a hint of black threading

Remember that black fabric does allow some light to penetrate. If you are wanting opaque, see #702

300 Paper Plain Untreated paper (Dulkote)
301 Parchment Light Oiled Light colored Oil-Treated Paper Parchment - Shade color does darken with time, much faster than other shades.
When the shade is first made/purchased it is off-white and then mellows with age.
302 Parchment Dark Oiled We add a darkening agent to our oil to create this wonderful, soft, aged look.
400 Burlap Natural Yes, just like the burlap sack!  This fabric is laminated to paper instead of styrene. Low light penetration.
506 Flax
Barkcloth

Natural
Natural Earth Tone - Medium Flax texture - similar in nature to the Burlap, only better quality and allows light to penetrate.
508 Linen Beige Medium texture.
509 Linen White

Parchment

Federal Blue

Lightweight Linen - Very versatile fabric.
702 Black Paper Black/Gold liner Heavy Paper - Dull Black outside with a Gold Foil interior - Finished with a black paper tape, top and bottom.
This shade is completely opaque - Used many places for accent lighting. Looks great in office areas.
MRP Mushroom Pleated White

Parchment

Mushroom Pleat is a soft-gathered pleating. Pleating is made from a lightweight linen.
Finished with a matching, double-fold, self trim.
Laminated Customer Provided N/A You can provide us with your fabric. This allows you to have lamp shades in any color, pattern, texture or design you can imagine.  Most fabrics work. Cotton/Polyester blends work best. 100% cotton needs to be pressed and rolled on a tube to eliminate the deep/dominate creases to de-laminate from the shade. Call with any questions, concerns, or to see how much fabric is needed for your shade(s). You may also provide us with trim for the top and bottom edge, or we can make a matching trim from the fabric you provide.

#302 Dark Parchment & #301 Light Parchment

We offer the oil treated paper parchment shades in two choices, Light and Dark.  The picture shows one of each on lamps using 100 watt light bulbs.  Remember these shades will vary somewhat from each batch that is oiled.  The light is not white, but close.  It does mellow out rather quickly and softens with age.
