what is Henna lamp?

Henna lamps are made of sheep or goat skin that is stretched around different shapes of handmade Moroccan wrought iron frames. After dying the skin, with a needle, the henna artists, generally girls, meticulously draw different intricate motifs, which appear to be fine black lines on the skins. They let the henna dry for around one hour and then the painter artists apply different color paints in the different recipients drawn with henna. Henna lamps use typical Moroccan vibrant colors, such as red, yellow, orange or blue which makes you think of Aladdin's glowing magical lights. These techniques have been used for many centuries and have been passed along many generations.  Enjoy our Moroccan lighting collection with its ethnic lamp shades and various tables.
