This suspension is handcrafted and unique. It may have certain irregularities that make it so charming. There may be slight variations in shape, size, or color depending on the condition of the material. The color is sometimes green when the material is young and becomes tanned with time and sunshine.
To assemble the fixture, I usually tie a nice string (hempy strings fit perfectly to this) from the ceiling to the shade handle. The string length depends on the distance you want your lamp off the top. Electric cable is not included; you can pass the electric wire in the opening.

* To accelerate the yellowing of the fiber, leave the suspension in the sun for a few days.
* The fiber of alfa, the Mediterranean grass used to make these luminaires, is malleable. If it has been folded during transport and keeps its shape due to transport, let it sit on the ground for a few hours until it returns to its standard shape. If this is not the case, you can spray it lightly and help it with weights or templates.
