Lampshade manufacturing was always a cottage industry. Many small home manufacturers would make and sub contract for bigger firms who would then supply to retail. Over the last 15 years many manufacturers were forced out of business because they could not compete with cheap imports from the Far East. The retailers also decided to cut out the middle men and import direct to their stores . The high street is now filled with neutral coloured poor quality lampshades that have been modified to fit in container ships.
