How do I clean my lamp?


Remember to wash your hands before handling the lampshade. We recommend the use of an electronics compressed air duster to blow-off dust and lint from hard-to-reach areas. It works perfectly and it's a very easy way to clean your shade. For pet’s hair you can use a small lint rollers. Masking tape or packing tape also works using the sticky part of the tape gently into the fabric. For marks and scuffs, we recommend the use of a dry clean sponge or Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. If you need more cleaning power a Laundry stain remover pen will work. Just gently applied to the affected zone, note that sometimes it may require multiple applications.




Do you sell wholesale?

What happen if my package was damaged during transit?


If you see the package it has been damaged during transit, you can reject it and the carrier will send it back to us to process a claim.

If that is the case, let us know as soon as possible and we will start a claim.

If you haven't contacted us within 7 business days after receiving the damaged package La Loupe Design will be not responsible for the claim.
