Antigua’s Rawhide shades are handmade at our factory in Peru using traditional, old world craftsmanship from carefully selected, sun-dried hides. Our hides are skillfully treated to maintain consistent color and texture. The rawhide artisans carefully cut and hand-stitch with the same natural leather lacing, each rawhide panel to a sturdy metal lampshade frame.
Our Rawhide Shades are noted for their high quality finish and low maintenance. Where other rawhide shade companies require that their shades be treated with oil application on a monthly basis, our shades, made from hides uniquely processed and sun-dried, only need an occasional dusting.
Traditional and yet elegant, our Rawhide Shade collection includes a variety of shapes and sizes to complement various lamp styles and sizes. What started as small line of 4 shade styles back in 1996 has grown to 10 Lamp Shade styles in 3 Rawhide Shade collections and 1 Custom Rawhide Shade showcase.
