Heres a quick pic of our new Simple Shade Wool Pendant Collection showcasing at The Campaign for Wool & Heals Tottenham Court road 5th-12th October. More images to come…
In the meantime wheres a bit of info about the collection HRH The Prince of Wales, Patron of The Campaign for Wool;
The shades are all Ø80cm and are made from a mix of Shetland and Aran British wool. Hand crocheted in Tower Hamlets East London by master crafters, making each piece completed one off and unique.
As the wool is being discontinued by the mill these are limited edition pieces, we may make more but not from exactly the same Shetland and Aran yarns shown here.
The shades come complete with a length of copper plated tube which runs from the pendant up to the ceiling. The frames are also copper and peep throughout the crocheted wool adding subtle contrast to the soft surface of the wool.
‘As I never tire of pointing out, wool is not only one of the oldest fibres known to mankind, it is also one of the most beneficial, and it fills me with dismay when we overlook it’
As part of 50 designers showcasing at The Campaign for Wool Interiors Collection we are very excited to be launching our first wool lighting collection, made using shetland and aran wool from Wales. The exhibition is located this year at Southwark Cathedral and opens from 5th-12th October – Come & See!

Huge thanks to The London Magazine, the UK’s oldest cultural and literary journal who have just awarded us with this most covetable award.
With some very kind words from one of the judges, luxury leather goods designer Bill Amberg, thanks you Bill –
“What’s interesting about Naomi Paul is the great mix of technology and craft. She uses a manual process and you can see how her work has been built by hand but it also has a thoroughly modern feel and look. I also like the way her lighting works well at different scales. I’ve seen the large light in the Condé Nast college and it looks amazing. It works well close-up and from afar. Her lights have weight and density but she pulls off a nice trick – they have volume and come in strong shapes yet look light and airy.”
