Natural fiber materials make it easy to create a variety of shapes in these lights using different weaving styles. Some are tightly woven like the light in the above image. Others are more loosely woven which creates lovely patterns on the surrounding walls/surfaces when the light is turned on.



These variations of color and weaving styles are just two of the things that make each natural fiber light special and unique.  They are perfect for solutions in both commercial and private settings both indoors and out ! The range of shapes in which they are crafted offer so many choices.  One of the most interesting shapes that we have here at MIX is known as a UFO lantern because of it’s saucer-like appearance. We have both light and dark available made in either bamboo or rattan. Pictured below are our UFO lanterns hand woven from bamboo strips.



An elegant and unique shape for natural fiber lights is seen in our tear drop basket weave lanterns. These ones are made of rattan and are simply exquisite in their form and especially effective when displayed in groups of various sizes and heights.


Another material that can be used within natural fiber lights is rope. When woven together with rattan and hung with rope, it has a thicker texture than most organic fiber lights.



Organic fiber lights are fresh and easy in style, which is a big reason why they work so wonderfully either in groups or individually. They can blend together beautifully in a busy space, even if they are different shapes and sizes; they can also serve as a strong, simple presence when placed by itself.
