About Me


I’m Rachael. I founded Oohlalalampshades in 2012 as I love making lampshades!  I source my fabrics locally and wherever I happen to be.

I love bold patterns and mixing fabrics together and oh I love pom poms! My attention to detail is paramount and I ensure that each lampshade is finished perfectly. Please do get in touch if there is anything I can help you with as most things are possible!

The Bowed Oblong style lampshades are only suitable for table lamps. All of the other styles are suitable for both table and ceiling fittings.

All my lampshades are made with a flame retardant PVC lining which has passed the glow wire test carried out by the Lighting Association. 

My lampshades are currently on sale in the following shops…

Fish out of Water Gallery, Wooton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire

Ty Cariad, Brecon, Powys

The Emporium, Yeovil, Somerset

Celebration Fairs, Thornbury, Gloucestershire

Sew Vintage, Wells, Somerset

I hope you enjoy my website and thankyou so much for looking.
