There is no substitute for genuine rawhide lamp shades for southwestern lamps, antler lamps, wall sconces, chandeliers and home lighting if you need rustic lamp shades. Indian drum desk lamps, and Indian pottery table lamps or wrought iron lamps with rawhide lampshades are perfect for western decor. Our southwestern rawhide shades for rustic lighting compliment cottage lodge style, rustic chic and rustic furniture.

Raw hide or rawhide lamp shades are made by hand with old world craftsmanship. This southwestern lamp shade laced with rawhide leather is a superior upscale lampshade, just right for your favorite western lamps or rustic lighting fixture. The translucent character of leather lamp shades made with rawhide allows a lamp to emanate from within the shade to create a natural atmosphere. Rawhide lampshades are perfect for a log home or cabin as well as country, ranch or rustic decor. Stretched rawhide lamp shades are works of art that will make a dramatic affect on your room, southwest furnishings or decor.

About Rawhide:

Sooner or later rawhide wears out. We recommend rawhide conditioner and an LCD bulb. Read our tips on rawhide lamp shade care.  To avoid splitting, heat/dryness has to be addressed. Rawhide is not tanned like leather. Rawhide lamp shades can last several years but it is "raw hide" constantly expanding and contracting with heat and humidity. When wet or humid, it loosens and when heated or dry it tightens. Heat will cause the hide to tighten until it finally tears. Watch out for high wattage bulbs for shade size, direct sunlight, placement near a heat duct, or not conditioning the hide frequently enough.  February seems to be the worst month for rawhide shade splitting because of the prolonged use of heat drying the rawhide. For these reasons, there is no guarantee on shade life so make sure you consider if rawhide is a good fit for your application.

    A Perfect Fit

    Posted by Vivian on Nov 25th 2017

    Beautiful leather lampshade to go with our lamp we purchased in Colorado. That original leather lampshade split over the years and this new one goes beautifully with the lamp. It is the perfect fit and size. Well packaged and it arrived without a blemish. Very happy with our purchase.

    Replacement Lamp Shade

    Posted by Don on Aug 4th 2016

    These replacement shades are much better than those that came on the lamps in 1997. We couldn't be more pleased.
