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 Malika crochet pendants.

Each pendant 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 Malika pendants are inspired by objects used in daily Moroccan life, like tagines, baskets and pots.  Each Malika 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.

Materials:  Handmade using silky viscose ‘kitan’ thread, a textile traditionally used to embellish Moroccan Kaftans, on handmade brass rings.

Electrical Light Fittings:  The Malika Crochet Lights are lampshade only. 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.

Hamimi Biography

Far from Ordinary.  From a place like no other, where time is less defined and traditional craftsmanship is still honoured. Designed and handcrafted in Marrakech.   Hamimi is a boutique brother and sister design brand, with Alex based in Brisbane and Rebecca on the ground in Marrakech, where our team of local artisans bring our designs to life. Together we create original artisan jewellery, bags, crochet lamps and more. We offer a fresh take on Moroccan design, capturing the country’s exotic culture and honouring traditional craftsmanship. Our designs embrace the old and the new, combining traditional materials and techniques with a contemporary sensibility. Daily life in Marrakech provides an endless source of creative inspiration – it’s a place where you can have one foot in the very distant past and the other seemingly in the future. Our designs embrace the old and the new, combining traditional materials and techniques with a contemporary sensibility. We appreciate texture and are not afraid of using colour. We like to mix old and new, traditional and modern, to produce items of contemporary yet timeless appeal. In this age of mass production, we instead focus on handcrafting our products in the traditional artisan way. Each product is invested with human touch – made by hand with heart. Our crochet lamps, jewellery and handbags are handmade by a small community of women in a village just outside 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.
