India's Fabric umbrella lamp shade. Colorful Ethnic embroidered ceiling lampshade decor ornament. Ethnic decor idea. From Artikrti
Indian decorative umbrellas as lampshades or ethnic decor idea: Umbrellas are not for the rain. In ancient India, umbrellas were tailored and embroidered for kings and gods to be protected from the sun's harsh rays. And as befitting a king or god, they were decorated with much pomp and colour- colourful threads and motifs, mirrors, gold and zari work, intricate embroidery, beads and sequins.
From such a tradition, we now have decorative umbrellas as ethnic decor elements for the home. Let your imagination drive your decor sense- how about it as a lampshade in the living room. Or over a dining table, like a stained glass lampshade? Have a floor lamp? Crown it with this colourful umbrella to add that dash of colour. Have a plant corner? Add a splash of colour and motifs to the green there.
These handmade umbrellas from Rajasthan are bound to bring in some cheer into any room in your home and get that "Where did you get that" from your guests.

India’s textile & fabric traditions go down centuries- the talent of the craftsman and her dedication to her craft, passed on from one generation to another. A weave, a mix of colors, a design or a motif, a print, a piece of applique work- each a labor of love for the artisan, in giving birth to her creation.
Artikrti’s [meaning 'artistic creations'] mission is to take the fascinating kaleidoscope that is India and get the world outside to experience it. And add a stroke of beauty that’s different, to each woman’s life- to her personal beauty and her home.
Thank you for dropping by. In true Indian tradition, we hope your visit to Artikrti was a pleasurable one and we do hope to see you again in the future.
ONLY a colorful umbrella. No lamp accessories or holders. Used in the picture shown as a ceiling lampshade by simply hanging the umbrella by its handle, from the lamp fitting.
