Seven Saints Crochet Lights
Statement Lighting of Devine Shape and Splendid Proportion
To many locals, Marrakech is also known as the City of Seven Saints. This name refers to seven men of historical, religious and spiritual significance who's tombs in the Medina have been destinations of religious pilgrimage since the 17th century.These seven men, said to be blessed with incredible wisdom, shone in their time as beacons of guidance and spiritual enlightenment. Paying homage to these men, our Seven Saints Crochet Lights are created in seven glorious models of divine shape and splendid proportion.
Each pendant is handcrafted by women in a small village community near Marrakech. By partnering with these women we aim to keep their traditional skills alive and create a brighter future for them and their families.

Good Design | Doing Good
Like all of the products we design and create, our Seven Saints Crochet Lights marry traditional Moroccan materials and techniques with a contemporary sensibility. They are designed to look good, but they also do good. We like to think of it as 'style with substance'.
Our crochet lights (jewellery and objects) are handcrafted by a community of women in a small village on the outskirts of Marrakech. Making our products gives these women the opportunity to extend their skills and the potential to generate much-needed additional income. The benefits are clearly much more than just financial, as their sense of purpose, hope for the future, and connection to a bigger world has also grown. As the demand for our crocheted lights has grown, we have been able to train more women so that the benefits to the community reach even further. It is quite amazing to see our crocheted lamps, created in a humble village in Morocco, hanging in designer hotels, restaurants and homes around the world.
Our team of Moroccan artisans is at the heart of Hamimi - they bring life to our vision.

Each crochet pendant is handmade using silky viscose 'kitan' thread, a textile traditionally used to embellish Moroccan Kaftans.
Our current colour collection is inspired by the diversity of Morocco, from its earthy landscapes, vibrant cities, coastal villages, fragrant spices and dark desert night skies.
With 16 standard colours from which to choose, there is a colour or combination of colours, to suit almost any interior setting or style. Each model is available in either 'One Colour' or 'Two Colour' formats. With the Two Colour format, the second colour is in the bottom section starting just below the lowest ring.
Custom colours may also be available upon request.
Colour sample kits which include the actual thread we use for all 16 standard colours are available to order below.
