OKA x Cabana
Marrying British and Italian design with global craftsmanship, this exclusive collaboration sees a vibrant collection of lamps and shades drawing on Martina Mondadori and Sue Jones’ shared love of pattern, color and travel.
The natural linen that forms the Ambi Lampshade is made in Jaipur and adorned with a paisley design. It takes a great deal of skill both to carve the wooden block used to print the pattern, and to create the pleasing orangey reds and greens within said pattern; the dyes are mixed very carefully by an artisan and hand block-printed onto the fabric, then an enzyme wash is applied which reacts to alter the colour to the desired bespoke one. The fabric is then gathered by hand around the metal frame and finished with a contrasting lining and squiggly trim. Paisley has been influenced over the centuries by a number of cultures, including those of India, Scotland, and England, making it the perfect fit for Cabana's aesthetic, which is rooted in travel and exploration. In many Indian languages paisley is known as the mango pattern, ‘Ambi’ meaning ‘mango’ in Punjabi. This is the larger of the two shade sizes.
