The Do-It-Together light is a lightshade that we create collaboratively. We provide the materials and tools, and you make it yourself.
We have printed the shapes of the elements on organic cotton and with the supplied cutting wheel and cutting mat, you can cut these out. Then you follow the very clear instructions to fix the 3D printed fixing onto the wire of a pendant lightbulb, insert the metal arms and hang the cut-out fabric pieces.
You can decide how to finish the lightshade, leave it in the beautiful plain organic cotton or colour it, embroider it, perforate it, anything you like.
You can hang the D.I.T. Light on an existing pendant light which are also widely available from hardware stores.
The D.I.T. Light is made in the UK.
EU orders, please note:
As a result of the UK leaving the EU, all orders going to an EU country are now subject to additional VAT and import handling charges. The amount depends on which country you are in.
We do not charge VAT on EU orders, but you will need to pay the VAT to your country’s customs. This varies between 17% and 27% of the order value, depending on your country. In addition, there will be a handling charge from the courier company (Post, DHL or FedEx) which can be on average £15. The couriers handling charge is the same if you order more Garlands.
This can add in total between 24€ and 30€ to an order of 1 Garland!
Once your order has shipped, you will receive a text or email from the courier about the VAT and charges, and how to pay.
In normal times deliveries outside the UK would take 3–5 days, but we are experiencing some large delays now. Sometimes deliveries will arrive within this time and sometimes there can be a two-week delay. It is quite unpredictable but please keep this in mind. As soon as we book the shipping of your order, we will send you the tracking number and you can follow the delivery.
Deliveries inside the UK are on time and arrive normally in 1–2 days from shipping.
