Our southwestern lamps and shades are made by hand with old world craftsmanship. Each rawhide lampshade is laced by hand with the same natural leather hide to create superior upscale rawhide lamp shades.

We offer traditional low profile shades and rawhide "bell" lamp shades which are 50% taller. Shades from small 4" chandelier lamp shades to large 24" floor lamp shades.

The natural hide is a light tan and yellow color, perfect for southwest, rustic or country decor. When a lamp is turned on with the rawhide lamp shade in place, itís translucent character comes to life.

Measurement Instructions

   Southwest Indian Treasures

Three measurements are needed to choose the perfect shade for you. You should measure the bottom diameter, top diameter, and height. The height of a shade should be measured straight up and down vertically rather than along the slant.

The reason we measure the height straight up and down, vertically is that the measurement of your lamp from bulb socket base to the top of harp is most likely the minimum vertical height you will want to cover with your shade. The height of your lamp can be adjusted with a shorter or taller harp to be able to use a standard lampshade rather than ordering a custom rawhide lamp shade.

To order the correct Shade: You probably have an idea of the approximate size, so simply consult the list of our rawhide lamp shades below and choose the one that you think is best.

12" 8" 8.5" 5"
14" 8.5" 9.5" 5"
16" 8" 10.5" 5"
18" 9" 11" 5"
20" 9" 12" 5"

24" 10.5" 14" 5"

  

Step 2:  Make a simple two-dimensional flat pattern the size of the shade out of paper or cardboard. Use the lower edge of the cardboard for the base line. Measure up the height of the shade and draw a horizontal line parallel to the base line which will represent the top edge of the shade. Now draw a vertical line straight up and down from base line or to the top edge line. If you imagine the base line, vertical line and top edge line as the capital letter "I" you are on the right track.

Step 3: Mark the top and bottom dimensions of the shade on your pattern so that you get the correct slant for the edge of the shade. From the center line measure and mark the top diameter of the shade. If the top diameter is 5inches then measure to the left and right of the center line along the top edge line 2.5 inches on both sides and make a mark. Those points are the top corners of your pattern. Repeat along the baseline using the shade's bottom diameter. If it seems confusing, refer to the sample above.

Step 4: When you cut out the pattern and have someone hold it in place over the lamp, you will be able to step back and look. Even though it is flat, you will be able to get a feel for how the shade will look on your lamp and be sure of your decision. 

This technique is a quick and easy way assist in your shade size selection. It will also save you time and frustration simply because they are able to select the shade that is best for your lamp.
