Silk cocoon

Natural colour


The cocoon is composed of silk that is made in glands within the body of the silkworm. In commercial silk farming, silk thread (usually totaling hundreds of metres from each cocoon) is spun off from the cocoons after they've been boiled, but we are using the totally unprocessed cocoons.


The diffuser is formed of a random configuration of silk cocoons, each of which is attached to a hand soldered wire matrix. The process starts by attaching the silk cocoons to strands of wire. The first strands are then attached to a hand brushed stainless steel frame, and the layers of silk cocoon slowly built up, checking the overall form of the piece all along the way to unique handcrafted lighting diffuser.


The colour of the material is a soft white that yellows a little with age. To clean diffusers in this material, we recommend that they be dusted or lightly vacuumed. The diffuser can also be removed and taken to a specialist dry cleaner.
