Cable and Cotton are a Brighton based company. They produce hand made string lights and lampshades which are hand-made with care by skilled craftswomen in Thailand, and in buying their decorative lights you are helping to support an entire community of women in a remote southern region of the country.

They take pride in their working conditions, where their “office” is in the fresh, open air. Set up with the help of the Thai government’s project OTOP, and designed to support small sustainable business projects in rural Thailand, Cable & Cotton guarantees year-round income for their workers.
Each and every lamp is hand-made. So with Cable and Cotton decorative lighting, your home gets a shot of beautiful colour, and you get the feel-good factor of knowing you’ve supported the livelihood of true craftswomen. It’s a win-win for everyone.
