On the road to the Atlas Mountains at the far reach of Marrakesh city rests a little village where a community of women handcraft our crochet pendant lights. By partnering with these women we hope to keep their traditional skills alive and help create a better future for them and their families.
The sculptural shapes are inspired by objects used in daily Moroccan life - like tagines, baskets, pots and lanterns. They are designed to work well individually or in a a group of like or different shapes and sizes.
They are handmade from traditional hand spun Moroccan kitan thread and are available in a wide range of colours.

Each Malika Pendant Light is made to order. Please allow 2 to 4 weeks for production and shipping direct from Marrakech. We will advise current estimated lead times upon receiving your order.
They come flat packed in a reusable canvas and leather tote with leather & crochet key ring tag and watercolour product card.
Our Malika crochet pendant lights are available in a choice of 16 standard colours in either one solid colour or in two colours. With the two colour option, the colour change occurs just below the lower of the two middle rings as standard.
When ordering simply select your desired top colour and bottom colour from the drop down lists. If you want just one solid colour simply select the same top and bottom colours.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding the colours or need any assistance with your selection.
Electrical light fittings are not included. 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. Please contact us if you require any guidance or assistance.
We recommend using LED bulbs as they are energy efficient and do not generate high heat levels. You may like to experiment with the strength of the bulbs to achieve your desired brightness / ambience in the space.
You can also use pearl or clear bulbs to create different effects - a pearl bulb will contain the light within the pendant to create a warm glow whereas a clear bulb will punch the light out through the weave to create a patterned effect on surrounding ceiling and close walls.
Choosing between a warm or cool white bulb will also effect the ambience you create - we typically use a warm white bulb.
