The Copper Dust story




What makes your home special? The side ornaments you picked up from the latest trendy store on your local high street.... At Copper Dust we believe in curating handmade products to make your home tailored to you.

The idea of Copper Dust came when the Founder and Designer Vanessa Agyemang was out shopping with a friend looking for a lampshade, they searched high and low and found nothing that was handmade or bespoke in any way. With a Bachelor honours degree in Interior Architecture and Design as well as a diploma in Interior Design, it was only right for Vanessa to take this challenge upon herself, to create limited edition products to inspire conscious led homes.

So after graduating she took various positions, within the design sector including working as a CAD technician for a 16th century resort, a corporate Interior Designer and a visual merchandising assistant for Habitat. 

Alongside this Vanessa is an award winning international Model, in which she takes inspiration from the Fashion industry, to design each individual piece, in the Copper Dust  collection.

Our Belief

Copper Dust is a recipient of  The Prince's Trust it is a luxury British  home decor brand specialising in bespoke handmade lampshades and limited edition illustrations. It's inspired by eclectic British and African culture infused together, giving a taste of the exotic, whilst remaining quintessentially British. 

We think every product purchased from Copper Dust, should make your home feel special. This is why all of our products are handmade in Britain, with carefully chosen materials. As each item is made with love care, they may vary from one to another.

This is the Copper Dust story, what will be your story with our handmade pieces?
