Anyone have a good source for burlap or linen - - -

tinam61August 14, 2012

lamp shades? I'm looking for a good price as I need to buy several. Oooh I saw a fab one the other day - more textured and a looser weave even than burlap - but it came ON a lamp - an expensive lamp - a lamp that I did not even like! LOL

Thanks for any suggestions.

You didn't mention the size/s you need, but I searched on 'burlap lamp shade' on eBay and got 91 hits. Link below.

Odd idea...but the hardware/garden centers sell burlap in larger thickness and openings for planting. It isn't the normal burlap used for upholstery.

Have you looked at Shades of Light? Their website has several burlap and linen shades. Their store in Richmond also has a big variety.

Yes, the hardware stores will have burlap. I like to put it under my xmas trees.
Two things to note.

1, It is smelly
2. It often has a red stripe

You can get upholstery type burlap at JoAnn Fabrics.

So sorry I just got back to this!

Thanks so much for all the suggestions. I should explain - I don't want to cover a lampshade. Want to buy them. Pottery barn has some good ones, but can be a bit pricey as I want several.

Mt. - I have a couple of burlap items and they don't smell. I didn't make them myself, so maybe they were treated somehow? I do have some burlap fabric here (also used at Christas - around a nativity scene and I made a stocking) - and I never noticed the odor. I think it must dissipate pretty quickly.

I am curious about the burlap at garden/hardware stores though!

Thanks again!!
