On the road to the Atlas Mountains at the far reach of Marrakech rests a humble village where a small community of women handcraft our crochet pendant lights in their homes. Crochet is a craft passed on through generations of women in this village. They typically crochet blankets and clothing for their own use, as well as scull caps, called taqiyah, that are worn by many Moroccan men.
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. ‘Malika’ is the name of the beautiful woman that made our very first crochet pendant.
A little note from Beldi: Please note colors can differ slightly from the above image. Minor color variations and imperfections are part of the handmade nature of the work and should be cherished as unique qualities.
