Henna Leather wall lamps

The basic material for each henna lamp is fine goatskin, which is why henna lamps are also known as leather lamps. In Morocco, an iron frame is first forged by hand for this purpose. So that the subsequent leather cover remains tightly stretched, it is fixed to the frame by hand stitching. Only then does the painting with traditional ornaments and patterns follow.

The tradition of henna painting dates back to ancient times. Known as mehndi or henna tattoo, they are still popular today for decorating the body during festive occasions. This is also the case in Morocco, where henna painting is also used to decorate oriental lamps. The henna shrub is the supplier of the dye. When the dried leaves are crushed, a greenish powder is formed, from which the henna paste is mixed. The color turns to reddish brown only when the paste comes into contact with the protein of the leather.

Thanks to the semi-transparency of the goat leather, the light shines through in a subdued way. Thus, henna wall lamps spread a distinctly cozy atmosphere. The shapes of these iron-leather lamps are reminiscent of lace bags, vessels or suns, the style is sometimes more playful and sometimes more severe. But no matter which of our oriental wall lamps with artistic henna painting you choose: An eye-catcher offer these unique pieces always.
