The Best Before designs are hand-made, from fine pieces of recycled paper.
It is an age old technique from Korea, that the founders of the brand don't want to see forgotten.
The craftsmen and women cut the used papers into strips, roll the pieces up between two fingers which have been dampened, to form a strong rope-like cord.
Both men and women engage in this past-time but only a few "Living Treasures" continue to use the pages of old books in order to create pieces of art.
Recycling is a high prority in South Korea. Today, environmentally friendly workshops produce ropes from recycled paper, with no added colouring or bleaching.
Made from Macramé double half hitched knots, the FILET light casts a lace-like pattern of light. Its enchanting projection onto the walls creates a very distinctive effect... Elegant, timeless, environmentally friendly and socially responsible, Best Before lights are a great addition to your home. Delivery includes lampshade, lamp socket and black electrical cable. The material can be adjusted slightly in order for you to create the shape you desire: long and slim, short and round. . .
