Alibangbang, known as the butterfly leaf in the native language or illango, is shaped like a butterfly. This leaf has both medicinal and food flavoring purposes throughout the South Pacific. Fossilization is the process of drying leaves over a three to four month period and then hand rubbing the chlorophyll of the leaf so only the leafs skeleton remains. Once the chlorophyll is removed, the leaf is stained in organic dyes. -Since the leaves are natural, each one will absorb dye differently. The resulting effect is a lamp with different hues and shades (sometimes within the same leaf). These leaves are adhered to a heat resistant lamp backing. The frame is constructed from wrought iron, making the lamp very strong and durable; then its powder coated in order to ensure longevity of its color.

- Compact fluorescent light bulbs are highly recommended. these bulbs will get nice and bright without the added heat of a standard incandescent bulb. these bulbs also last much longer, in many cases over five years. on average, a 13-watt fluorescent bulb will create the same lumens of light as a standard 60-watt light bulb and a 26-watt fluorescent light bulb will have the same light output as a 100-watt incandescent bulb. please check with the manufacturer of a specific bulb for its specs.
- Fluorescent light bulbs are considered to be a great alternative to standard light bulbs since they promote energy efficiency. Compact florescent light bulbs have allowed us to create beautiful artistic lighting made out of organic materials that is still functional.
- If an incandescent bulb is used, we suggest a maximum of 40-watts.
