Hennalampen als Deckenleuchten aus kunstvoll bemaltem Leder

Oriental leather lamp transforms the room into a fairy tale from the Arabian Nights. The fine goatskin softens artificial lighting into a mysterious glow. This effect is particularly intense with a leather ceiling lamp in red. Light leather lamps, on the other hand, bring out the traditional henna painting more. It is from this ornate painting that our henna lamps get their name.

 

The henna shrub, which grows in North Africa, India and some other regions of Asia, provides the raw material for henna paste. The dried leaves are ground to a greenish powder and then mixed with warm water. Only after application to the leather lamp does the painting acquire its coveted orange to mahogany red color. Black color is achieved by adding indigo. 

 

In Morocco, skilled craftsmen still make leather lamps as they have done since time immemorial: first they forge an iron frame, then they cover and stitch it with soft goatskin. Painting with henna is traditionally left to the women. They are masters in decorating the henna lamps with the most intricate ornaments and patterns. Tiny variations are an expression of individuality and an unmistakable sign of the genuine handwork.
