Macrame Pendant Light


Handwoven macrame pendant light in a natural weave. Made in South Korea from 100% recycled paper.

Koreans have a long tradition of making paper cord and weaving with it and macrame is a traditional handicraft. The paper is cut into strips which are then rolled between two wet fingers to form outstandingly strong cord of varying thicknesses. This expertise which is becoming rarer has been harnessed by Best Before who wish to preserve it and give work to craftsmen through the creation of contemporary objects for everyday use. Only a few women work with Best Before to produce this collection, each with their own style and way to knot and tie.

Simple, organic and atmospheric, these lights would be ideal for use individually or in groups.
