Product information

A lasmpshade made of recycled plastic bottles and canisters. Fair Trade designed in collab with Heath Nash and his skilled artisdan team in South Africa.


Mini Bottleform is part of “Other People’s Rubbish,” a series of upcycled designs made at Heath Nash's Studio in Cape Town South Africa. Heath employes ex street youngsters making the frames for the lampshades, and women go and collect suitable plastic bottles and canisters for the lampshades. Collection is designed so, that no rubbish is left: all material is used for different lampshades. Handles are cut and collected for one lampshade, sides are cut to different shapes and formed to another kind of a lampshade. Sourcing the material is more expensive than material itself, as human labour is present. Washing the bottles clean from brand tags takes time and all is done by hand.

The outer shade is fashioned from an eclectic mix of differently shaped recycled bottle cut-outs which have been firmly secured to an frame made from galvanised steel wire. Heath Nash and his team turn trash to reasure, transform the untransformable.

Please note, the inner blub is not included.

Material: Recycled plastic bottles and cansters and galvanised seel wire.

Size about 25-30cm diamater

Fits on any standard lamp holder

Origin: handmade is South Africa



Mum's was born in South Africa in 2006, when Finnish Outi, an artist, and mum herself, collaborated with 15 African women. They made sculptures for an exhibition in Finland, all weaved by hand, designed by Outi, empowering women who worked from home. All women were mothers, so the project was named MUM's.

Later, it became the name for a sustainable brand "Mum's Good with Goods". Over the years a tiny art project has slightly developed into a sustainable design company, combining designers with sustainable production. Mum's has got production in four developing countries India, South Africa, Cambodia, and Bolivia. Everything is handmade as far as possible, people work from home, and save travel costs to operate. Materials are local either natural or recycled, and each Mum's product is signed by the artisan who made it.
