Triaxial Weaving 


Traditionally, lampshades have been another application of triaxial weaving.

The weave is light, strong, lets a lot of light through - and makes an attractive pattern - all attractive properties in a lightshade.


In the shade pictured above, a second decorative weave is employed - which plays a similar role to the paper that lines many light shades.

The shade consists of eight peices of fabric, glued onto a wooden frame.
