Illuminating Critters, Sustainable Design:

The Gecko Sconce is among the most creative pieces from Eangee, using abaca vine to create a slender animal form around powder-coated wrought iron, then shrouding the head in a colorful shade made from fossilized cocoa leaves. Nothing else out is quite like this inventive lamp. Love it for the whimsical shape, for the colorful illumination of its hand-dyed tropical leaf lamp shade, or for the fair trade practices that make this piece a responsible choice, both environmentally and socially.

The amazing lamp shade material is refined through a process of drying and fossilizing cocoa leaves that lasts more than four months and sees about 20% of the leaves survive the ordeal. Cocoa leaves are thoroughly dried throughout most of that period, then hand rubbed to remove the chlorophyll, leaving only the leaf's skeletal form. This form is stained with organic dye, carefully placed on a heat resistant backing, and then hand trimmed before receiving a coat of sealant to maintain integrity.

All of this beauty is attached to a powder-coated wrought iron frame, ensuring that the entire presentation remains rigid and stable as any formidable fixture should.

Eangee supports comprehensive fair trade practices that include following up with the artisans who make these products to ensure they receive decent wages, education, health care, and good housing.

Eangee supports sustainable materials in every product, including hand-treated cocoa leaves, abaca rope, nito vine, durian fruit fiber, and found wood.
