Thank you for your interest. Please complete, if you would like a sample of the stone and/or shade silk.
However, stone is a natural material and variance in texture and colour does occur. At Ian Knapper we take every care to ensure stone consistency, we consider this to be part of the natural beauty of stone, as no one piece will be identical.
The shade material is natural silk douppion. Silk is the most luxurious fibre in the world. The weaving and knitting of the fabric contains minor variations and irregularities. These are characteristics of fine silk yarn which gives the fabric its lustre and texture and should not be treated as defects.
If the stone we have specified is not suitable then you may wish to commission us to produce your lamp in an alternative stone. Please contact us to discuss the options.
