Light up the rooms of
your home and office naturally with our Natural Cocoa Leaf Hanging Drum
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.

complete hardwire kit including seven feet of adjustable cord and a
metal ceiling plate.
Natural Cocoa Leaf Hanging Drum Pendant Lamps
come in Natural, Green, Multi-Color, Red 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.
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
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
The Natural Cocoa Leaf Hanging Drum Pendant Lamp uses 3 light bulbs. 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.
