The perfect addition to any lamp or small appliance such as fans and radios, this beautiful fabric covered electrical wire is a great way to replicate that vintage industrial age charm.

This is BRAND NEW reproduction antique style 2-wire, 18 gauge (known as 18/2). Each wire is a stranded copper insulated wire (much like standard wiring of today) then covered in a braided cotton fabric. The fabric is soft and deep in color, similar to old industrial age cloth covered wiring. Two colors are utilized to create this eye catching chevron pattern, each wire braided individually then twisted together.

    High quality and easy to work with. The color and twisted cloth covering look really good on an industrial pipe lamp I built.
