The Capsule Light's shades are made from 100% wool felt that is harvested from sheep. Wool is a renewable resource, as the sheep will keep growing new coats of wool over their lifetimes. The production of wool felt relies on organized farming of sheep world wide, maintaining a steady supply of the raw material. Capsule Light’s wool is sourced and processed in Pennsylvania.
Biodegradable / Compostable
Because wool is an animal-derived product, it will biodegrade under the right set of conditions. The Capsule Light's shades can be shredded and put in a composting bin or buried to biodegrade over time.
Capsule Lights are handcrafted by one of the last remaining hat manufacturers in the United States. The shape, colors and details are the result of employing the manufacturer's skills and technology to create a product that fits an alternative and growing market. In addition to being designed for easy disassembly for composting, the lamp requires the use of energy efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.
Made in the United States from locally sourced materials. The manufacturing location was selected for its proximity to our studio as well as for its manufacturing practices and labor conditions.
