Tuesday's Design: Lampshades for Hope




What do you get when you combine amazing sketches by designers like Viktor & Rolf, Nina Ricci, or Hugo Boss and the embroidery talent of HIV/AIDS affected women in Swaziland?? Well, besides today's Tuesday's Design and providing a steady source of income for women most in need...you also get these fabulous lampshades! The company providing them to you is Paris-based Ithemba, the work comes via Designing Hope, a French NGO providing support in Swaziland.

You can also check out both websites above for lightbulbs with a designer touch and African craftsmanship.
