The PANGLAO Table Lamp features 8 “stacks” entirely handcrafted from buffalo and cow bone recovered with grey shagreen (also known as shagreen or stingray).
Our shagreen is uncommonly sumptuous in look and feel, creating a statement piece of lighting.
The grey shagreen skin used to craft this elegant piece is bought directly from Philippine fishermen, who would ordinarily dispose of it after the sale of the fish at the local markets.
The shagreen (of the group Dasyatis sephen) is neither endangered nor threatened; it is fished commercially as a primary food source and is found in abundance in the shallow, warm waters of the Pacific rim.
Because each PANGLAO Table Lamp is made by hand, each piece is unique and may vary slightly in shape and colour.
