bespoke custom-made lampshades  |  eco-friendly beeswax wraps

hand-made in Australia 

A LightenUp Handmade bespoke, custom-made lampshade will lighten up any room in your home. Our fabulous range of beautiful fabrics from some of the most talented Australian designers allows you to choose the perfect shade for your decor.


LightenUpHandmade is based in North West NSW. It was founded in 2017 by two sisters who share an appreciation for beautiful textiles.


Our philosophy is to continue the tradition of previous generations to produce beautifully made bespoke products here in Australia. We hope to add a touch of beauty to your home no matter where in this fabulous country of ours you live.

As well as custom hand-crafted lampshades we offer hand-turned timber lamp bases in two sizes to match your perfect shade. Or, if you prefer something "old" or something "new" there are lots of options to choose from in our on-line shop.


In keeping with our sustainable focus, we use our left-over fabrics to create WrapUp beeswax wraps. Our eco-friendly, sustainable and brightly coloured wraps are the best thing since sliced bread for keeping foods fresh!

Visit the About Us page to read our story, take a wander through our fabric gallery, seek inspiration in our lampshade gallery, shop online for our ready-made handmade products, or contact us to request more details.

We have been overwhelmed with orders in the past couple of months, partly due to the amazing response to the #buyfromthebush campaign which aims to support rural businesses in drought areas. 

We are so grateful for your support, but struggling to fulfil current orders for our hand-made lampshades.  So we have reluctantly decided to close custom orders until 6 January 2020. 

The good news is that we are more than happy for you to submit a custom order enquiry for a lampshade and we will place you on our wait-list.  We'll confirm your order when we reopen our order system on Monday 6 January 2020. 

As an alternative, we have a selection of ready-made lampshades available to purchase on our online shop. You might find just what you're looking for so have a look!

We would like to thank all our customers for your wonderful support over the past two years we have been in business. It is so gratifying to find that there are many people like us who just love a bit of colour in their homes! 


Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and happy New Year from the LightenUp team xxx
