Rachael Powell - The owner of Oohlalalampshades.

Hello! I’m Rachael and I founded Oohlalalampshades in 2012. I love making lampshades!  

I love bold, bright and colourful patterns and mixing fabrics together for that unique look. My attention to detail is paramount and I ensure that each lampshade is finished perfectly.

The Bowed Oblong style lampshades are only suitable for table lamps. These are fitted with a EU fitting and I will send an adaptor for UK fittings so they will fit any lampshade. Please let me know if you require a table or ceiling lamp fitting, I will assume you would like your lampshade as a table lamp fitting unless you let me know otherwise.

All lampshades are made with a PVC flame resistant backing.

Please do get in touch if there is anything I can help you with as most things are possible!

I publish my new designs on my Facebook page so if you have a minute spare you could take a peek there too.

My lampshades are currently on sale in the following shops…

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

Cloth, Wells, Somerset 

Ty Cariad, Brecon, Powys

Celebration Fairs, Thornbury, Gloucestershire

Sew Vintage, Wells, Somerset

I also attend the occasional market when time allows.

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