Our lamps are made from different kinds of textile waste from both consumers and industrial production.

They are then manufactured in collaboration with Göteborgs Kyrkliga Stadsmission, who offers work in a

socially sustainable way. Craftmanlike production contributes to create peace and quite in which to work,

balance and room for reflection. But also the invigorating feeling of being part of something. All the lamps

has it’s own ID number you can follow the story from waste to glory on every lamp here.
