About Detola and Geek

Detola and Geek

Award wining statement lampshades, homeware & gifts infused with African vibes

Hi, I'm Tola Laseinde, the designer / maker behind the award winning Detola & Geek which is based in Letchworth garden city, Hertfordshire, England.

This is where my two worlds collide. My love for gorgeous interiors and vibrant African wax print fabrics (a.k.a. 'ankara' in Nigerian circles).

It all started from my crazy love of ankara. The popular African material used originally in making clothes for all occasions - be it for everyday, evening, wedding or party wear. It's vibrant, eye-catching, colourful and easily adaptable.

I can never get enough of African/ankara wax print fabrics. And literally these fabrics have exploded globally. They're' everywhere. You even see them on famous fashion runways. Brands all over the world now use them in their products - both fashion design and interior home accessories.

NOW THE BUSINESS BIT ...
So I thought to myself one day, as you do, you know what I can do one better! With my love of interior design, I didn't want to delve away from interiors, home decor & accessories. And I have always wanted to make products myself, by hand, using these gorgeous fabrics. And then I had a light bulb moment. LAMPSHADES!!!! Pun so intended.

My Detola & Geek African inspired handmade products are a quick & easy way to inject splashes of colour into your spaces.
Quite functional & trendy. These vibrant designs always get the conversation started. Right?

Love commissions, special projects, collaborations, bulk orders for interior designers, architects, small businesses as well as Film Sets & Stage Design are all welcome (kindly send me a message with your request).

I also teach lampshade making workshops / classes. & sell in person at handmade markets & fairs. You can find all current events on my website,

All my handmade product are made in a smoke free & pet free home studio
