Handcrafted statement pendant with an original personality. Ideal in bedrooms, social spaces or hung a little low over a dining table. Works well as a single feature or in a cluster of like or different sized Wahad crochet pendants.
Each lampshade is hand crocheted to order by women artisans in a small village on the outskirts of Marrakech. By partnering with these women we aim to help keep their traditional skills alive and create a brighter future for them and their families.
To reflect their origin, the sculptural shapes of the Wahad pendants are inspired by objects used in daily Moroccan life, like tagines, baskets and pots. Each Wahad Crochet Pendant is beautiful on its own as a unique single feature in any room or over a table, but by mixing similar or different models, sizes and colours in a group or cluster offer possibilities for dramatic one-of-a-kind interior installations.
Electrical Light Fittings: The electrical light fittings and cable will need to be purchased separately. The pendants are designed to fit standard pendant light fittings. We recommend the ready to use single pendant sets from creativecables.com . Creative Cables have dedicated online stores in many international destinations and supply metal or ceramic fittings with cotton textile cable in a very wide range of colours.
Light Bulb: Max 11W Warm White LED (Clear or Pearl). Light bulbs are not included. You may wish to experiment with the strength of the bulb to achieve your desired brightness and ambience in the space.
You can also use pearl or clear bulbs to create different lighting effects – a pearl bulb will contain the light within the pendant to create a warm glow whereas a clear bulb cast light out through the crochet weave to create patterned shadows on the surrounding ceiling and close walls.
Choosing between a warm or cool white bulb will also affect the ambience you create – we typically use a warm white bulb.
Installation: To be installed by a qualified electrician. Simple installation instructions are included.
Packaging: Each pendant is flat-packed for safe and economical shipping.
Cleaning & Care: Clean regularly with a feather duster, lint roller and/or vacuum with a furniture nozzle attachment. Can be wiped clean with a lightly dampened cloth.
