Ilala produces hand-woven interiors products from indigenous grasses, cane, river reeds, creepers and, of course, ilala palm, baked in the sun of sub-Saharan Africa. The company champions authenticity, the warmth and wonky imperfections of nature, so that no two pieces are ever the same.

At Lighting by Design it will showcase the perfectly proportioned ‘Giant Tonga Plain’ shade and the ‘Bulawayo Garlic Gourd’ lamp base which are wonky garlic gourds, traditionally used as grain stores, cleverly adapted into a lamp base. A statement piece for any interior, it is highly textured and rustic.
