The cocoa leaves used in the Natural Cocoa Leaf and Bamboo Kalani Wall Sconces 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 in-tact 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. The real bamboo used in these sconces has been hand stained to create contrast to the bold shade colors. The bamboo is bound with natural twine and then attached to the wrought iron frame.

This wall sconce comes corded for easy plug in, or the plug end may be cut off and the sconce hard-wired into your receptacle.

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.

More About Bamboo:
Bamboo is an ecologically friendly and beautiful choice for furnishings and light fixtures. Since bamboo is a grass, it grows and matures much quicker than a tree. Within five years of sprouting, the walls of the culms (the bamboo stalks) will have thickened and hardened and will be ready for harvest. That means every year 15 to 20 percent of the forest can be harvested without clear cutting. Compare that to a hardwood forest and you will see that bamboo is a very productive and sustainable plant material. Unlike quick growing pine (aka "trash pine") trees that many timber companies have planted in place of native trees and forest, and take at least 25 years to grow large enough to harvest for pulp or cheap framing lumber, bamboo grows quickly and has fine building qualities. Bamboo is also very hard--harder than rock maple, which is one of the hardest of North American trees. Using bamboo means less dings and dents and a more durable product.

Cocoa Leaf and Bamboo Wall Sconce 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.

Note: Due to the nature of bamboo, at times it may split when it is first introduced into a new environment. for this reason, our bamboo is always bound with twine. Splitting of the bamboo is extremely rare and this separation will not affect the strength, durability, or beauty of the lamp. This is one of the unique aspects of working with real, natural, materials.

Light Bulbs:
The Natural Cocoa Leaf and Bamboo Kalani Wall Sconce uses 2 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.
