Hello! My name is Shino Iwamura, I live in Osaka and I am Japanese.
Ever since I was a child, my biggest dream was to be a mangaka (a manga illustrator). After high school, I graduated from a major university of art in Kyoto.
After graduation, I lived in Europe for about 10 years, including many years in Milan, Italy. This is the city where I graduated from the Conservatory of Music and where I worked over three years in a symphony orchestra as a violinist.
After my experience in Europe, I decided to go back to Japan and turn my art into a business, designing and selling my lamps online, all over the world.
All my designs are related to Japanese culture and I think my products are likely to appeal to lovers of Japan and its ancient culture.
The lamps are completely handmade. They are unique artisanal products made with care.
I use high quality materials and I guarantee that with my professional means of production, the products will maintain their original quality and design.
The greatest satisfaction of doing this job is knowing that there are people around the world who purchase my lamps from places that I will probably never visit.
Thank you for visiting my online store and I sincerely hope that you purchase one of my lamps ...... and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (^_^)

The lamps are constructed with washi which is a kind of handmade paper of good texture, durability and translucence.
The word "washi" is composed of "wa" which means "japanese," and "shi" which means "paper". It refers to Japanese paper handmade using traditional methods, derived from the ancient art of papermaking.
The washi is achieved with very fine handwork. This paper has been used for centuries in Japanese homes for their ability to filter the light, softening the intensity and creating subdued lighting.
The washi is traditionally produced using vegetable fibers from bamboo, hemp, rice, mulberry and other local plants.
Since 2014, the washi has been associated in the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
A special first rate, high-quality washi is used.
The lamps are completely handmade by Shino Iwamura, from the conceptual drawings to the coloring by hand.
LED candle included * Autonomy of over 200 hours ...... to avoid shipping problems, the batteries are not included.
The quality of each lamp is absolutely guaranteed! (^_^)
WARNINGThe lamps MUST NOT be used with real candles.
