Alibangbang is known as the butterfly leaf in the Philippines. This leaf is used for medicinal and food flavoring purposes throughout the South Pacific. The leaves are dried through a fossilization process for up to four months. The chlorophyll in the leaves are hand rubbed leaving just the skeletal remains. The leaves are then stained with organic dyes.
These sustainable leaves are natural, and each one abosrbs the dye differently. The result is an eco friendly lamp with varying shades and hues. The leaves are fused to a heat resistant lamp backing. The frame is powder coated wrought iron, producing a very strong and durable lamp.
Handcrafted by skilled, fair trade artisans in the Philippines. The lamp measures 16 1/2" tall, 7" wide and 7" deep. Uses compact florescent bulb or 40 watt incandescent bulb.
