Now you can make your own gorgeous Harris Tweed Lampshade or bottle lamp at home! This DIY lampshade making craft kit would also make a brilliant birthday gift or Christmas gift teamed with a bottle of their favourite craft gin or malt whisky.
This craft kit provides all that you will need for making a 20cm (8in) or 25cm (9 1/2in) lampshade or, by choosing to add a bottle lamp adaptor to your kit, a Harris Tweed Gin Bottle Lamp or Whisky Bottle Lamp. The bottle is not included in this kit.
This Harris Tweed Lampshade Making/Bottle Lamp Making Kit comes complete with a panel of Harris Tweed cloth of your choice from those available with authentication label ready for attaching providing the most important finishing touch.

Harris Tweed is of course the iconic cloth exclusively made on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. With the wool dyed prior to being woven by hand this cloth is gorgeous in both its vibrant colours and its texture. Only Harris Tweed woven on the Scottish Island of Harris can legally bear the Harris Tweed authenticity label. Add a touch of Scottish luxury to your life with a light shade handmade by you in this beautiful fabric.
