Light up the rooms of your home and office naturally with our Natural Cocoa Leaf
Hanging Cylinder Pendant Lamps
A light made from chocolate? Well...not quite, but the cocoa leaves
used in the Natural Cocoa Leaf Hanging Drum Pendant Lamp are collected from the
same plant chocolate is made from. After a process called fossilization, the
leaf is dyed with organic, non-corrosive dye to create the desired color. Only
the leaves that remain fully intact are used on the lamps. The remaining leaves
are then re-purposed for use in other projects. The powder coated frame is
constructed from wrought iron, making the lamp very strong and durable.
Dimensions: 7"L x 7"W x
Each lamp comes with a complete hardwire kit including
seven feet of adjustable cord and a metal ceiling plate.
Natural Cocoa Leaf Hanging Cylinder Pendant Lamps come in
Multi-Color, Green, Natural, Red, Orange and Sea Blue. Colors are approximations and may differ slightly from lamp to lamp and
from screen to screen.
More About Fossilization:
Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period
and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll of the leaf so only the leaf’s skeleton
remains. This is a labor-intensive process and no corrosive chemicals are used.
Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained with organic dyes. Since
the leaves are natural, each one will absorb the dye differently. The resulting
effect is a lamp with different hues and shades (sometimes within the same
leaf), making each and every lamp unique. There are a few cases in which the leaf may have a small tear before it was
adhered to the lampshade; due to the low-impact sealant we use, no tear will
increase in size nor will any leaf pull from the shade.
More About Cocoa:
The cocoa tree is a small 15–26 ft tall evergreen tree native to
the deep tropical region of the Americas. Its seeds are used to make cocoa
powder and chocolate. The scientific name Theobroma comes from Greek work
meaning "food of the gods". The word cacao itself derives from the Nahuatl Aztec
word cacahuatl. Similar words for the plant and its by-products are attested to
in a number of other indigenous Mesoamerican languages. The cocoa leaves may be
harvested sustainably (in moderation) without harming the overall tree.
Cocoa Leaf Hanging Pendant Lamp Care:
We do not recommend placing your lamp in direct sunlight as it
may cause the leaves to fade. If cleaning is required, use a dry cloth or duster.
We do not suggest using liquid
cleaners. Other than the occasional dusting or light bulb change, these lamps do not require any special maintenance.
The Natural Cocoa Leaf Hanging Cylinder Pendant Lamp uses 1 light bulb.
We suggest using compact fluorescent light bulbs in your lamp. These bulbs will get nice and
bright without the added heat compared to a standard incandescent bulb. The bulb
also will last much longer, in many cases over five or more years. On average, a
13-watt fluorescent bulb will create the same lumens of light as a standard
60-watt light bulb and a 26-watt fluorescent light bulb will have the same light
output as a 100-watt incandescent bulb. Please check with the light bulb manufacturer
for your specific bulb specifications. Fluorescent light bulbs are considered to be a great alternative to standard light bulbs
since they promote energy efficiency. We wanted to create artistic lamps that
can be functional; therefore, we designed our lamps with these bulbs in mind. If you use an incandescent bulb we suggest max 40 watt.
LED lights may also be used.
