Collection: Luma Lano

Manja ten Donkelaar and Sophie van der Lubbe: makers, thinkers, entrepreneurs and sisters-in-law. Home base: the Dutch countryside.

Our roots are in art education (Manja) and biology (Sophie). We have found each other in our shared love of nature, textiles and design. We have a mutual fascination for employing traditional techniques with a contemporary twist. A 'wabi-sabi' jacket, because what we love is the beauty of imperfection.

Wool felt is the starting point for all designs. How the wool behaves, the edges of what it can tolerate and how the nature of the felting process invites us to slow down/work mindfully. (how it noticeably slows down our work process.)

The wool we use comes from European merino sheep. We obtain our wool from farmers who work organically and sustainably. Once a small remainder of old non-organic wool stock is finished, every single LumaLano lampshade will be produced from organic European merino wool. 

In addition, we felt with biodegradable soap and hot water obtained from our solar heating panel, Solar panels provide us with electricity. 

The bulk of the pigments that color our designs is from our own dye garden, right behind the workshop. Walnut, goldenrod, cow parsley and many other plants provide us with colours varying from deep dark brown to bright yellow-green. For red pigments we have even put up a special ecosystem box with Frisian clay that allows us to grow madder root.

The peels of onions and avocados from our kitchens firstdonate their pigments to our paint baths before reaching the compost heap.
