Hand made by one of the best lighting artisans in Morocco.

Using a fine blade fretsaw tool, the master artisan in our lighting shop starts by placing a paper pattern of a complex drawing onto a brass sheet. then carefully does the intricate cutting work following the curves of the pattern on paper. Brass is cut, sculpted and engraved with extreme finesse.

The fretsaw tool, called “serrouj” in Morocco, gives this style of Moroccan lighting a high level of craftsmanship not found otherwise in the standard Moroccan lanterns. The high quality of these Moroccan pendant lamps is enhanced by hand-engraving over the brass metal giving these high-end pendant lamps added texture and beauty.

An art of brassware that is still practiced among fine craftsmen in Morocco.
