The Shroom 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 lifetime. The production of wool felt relies on organized farming of sheep world wide, maintaining a steady supply of the raw material. Shroom 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 Shroom Light's shades can be shredded and put in a composting bin or buried to biodegrade over time.
Shroom Lights are hand crafted by one of the last remaining hat manufacturers in the US. The shape, colors and details are the result of employing the manufacturers 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. Manufacturing locations were selected for their proximity to our studio as well as for their practices and labor conditions.
