Handcrafted lampshades made entirely by hand, using pure cotton yarn. Turning an everyday object into an artwork, Loving String designs colourways for all interiors, from timeless neutrals to punchy clashes, and everything in between. These lampshades provide a subtle and ambient light to illuminate any setting.

The story behind the business
meet loving string.

I have been intricately designing and making yarn lampshades since Spring 2020, following an eight year pathway in interior design and styling.

Made purely from 100% cotton yarn, and with careful use of colour, I single handedly create Loving String lampshades with the aim of bringing cohesion to any interior space. I believe in the importance of colour and the impact this can have on any room, whatever your interior style is.

Loving String lampshades are used by many designers for projects worldwide, and are stocked in Liberty London as well as a number of UK boutiques.
