Our Moroccan Pierced Metal Lamps are assembled and wired in Turkey. Moroccan lamp history dates back to the ancient Maghreb region of North Africa. The Berber tribes of the area were skilled in metal and pottery work, which led to the creation of these exquisite lamps. Moroccan lamps were used primarily for lighting and were a crucial part of everyday life in the area. Moroccan lamps became more elaborate by incorporating elements of Islamic art and geometry. They are primarily made of brass finished hand pierced metal with unique designs. These lanterns are perfect for creating a warm and inviting ambiance in any room, as well as a very cozy environment where one may meditate or read under the low light.
