Galileo first used a pendulum in the early 1600s to explore timekeeping. As if time stood still, the pendulum shade hoovers suspended over its bulb on a metal chain. The chain is attached to a sturdy metal arm, geometrically shaped to run parallel along the side of the shade. The artisan crafted together solid wood and metal to work seamlessly. The material combination continues a tradition of timeless pieces, similar to the clocks Galileo invented.

Our products are manufactured using materials that are sustainably harvested, safe dyes that are food-based, and water-based finishes.
The leaves used in our products are either collected after a tree naturally sheds them or are plucked from a living tree. In either case, the plant isn't harmed. Additionally, the purchase of the leaves we use provides a secondary income to the framers who grow and care for plants.
We view ourselves as partners with our manufacturers and continuously exchange ideas on how to improve production, product quality, and the health and well-being of the artisans that work to create the products we sell. We visit our manufacturers on a regular basis to ensure that our core mission is being followed.
Our products are produced in the Philippines, a country that is fast growing, and progressive on ensuring workers' rights. It is also a country where many companies are run by women and their entrepreneurial efforts are encouraged.
The artisans who make our pieces are paid a living wage, provided quality housing, have access to continuing education, and work under dignified and safe conditions.
