How to Make Victorian Lamp Shades
Are you ready to purchase a Moroccan henna leather lamp? Before that lets take a look at what is the specialty of the lamp and where does it come from. Firstly, let us understand what henna really is. Henna is a plant, which is used to make a dye. This dye is traditionally extracted from the dry henna leaves and used in decorative art. Henna is applied on hands and feet of mostly women as a decoration in various parts of the world. It is even used for decorating the hand of the bride in marriages in Northern India. In Morocco, henna is used for creating exotic designs for the leather lamps and lanterns. It is also known as Mehndi, in North Africa including Morocco, India, and the Middle East. It has traveled from all these countries to North America and is gaining popularity due to its subtleness, beauty and ability to be used in intricate designs.
The Moroccan henna leather lamps are made by professional artisans who have been doing it for centuries and the skill gets passed on from one generation to another. This is the exact reason why these lamps are unique. The best part is that no two henna lamps will have the same design. The lamps are made from goatskin with each section being hand-tied to a frame and finally the henna is applied for creating beautiful designs on the leather. Since so much effort goes into making a single henna lamp hence it is like a piece of treasure and owning one means that you belong to the elite class of people. It will become an integral part of your interior decoration.
