really amazing lamp.. I just loved it.. if Japanese paper is not available, can u suggest any other papar ..

Thank you for comment! You can make it of thin paper!!

Nice lamp shade! It looks very simple to make. Thanks for sharing this!

This lamp shade is Japanese famous material! It's subdued light.

Really nice project. I think I'd cut the paper into strips and wind it in a spiral and either put a second layer on over the bamboo or put the bamboo on first.

Thank you for advice! I want touse that asreference

Awesome lamp. Where do you get the shoji paper from?

Thank you for comment! I got it from "TOKYU-HANDS". It's a Japanese home improvement center.
