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.
There are many different types of materials that are now being used for the replacement lamp shade so you may want to take a close look at those as well. The more options you have and the more you look at, the better your decision on a replacement lamp shade will be. Just keep an open mind and see what you can come up with for your lamp.
If you don't have a metal frame to make your mica lamp shades, don't worry there is another option, though it may require a little more work! Take 4 or 6 coat hangers. Bend one of those hangers into the shape of a circle. Use a mug or a round container to get the desired shape. Do the same with another hanger and make it larger so that it can be the lower rim. Take 3 or 4 hanger pieces cut to the same measurement and connect both rims with them leaving equal spaces between them. Now comes the slightly harder part.
Lamps vary in weight from 6-10 pounds, they are approximately 6 diameter x 9 high and will produce about an 8' Ion radius. They have beautifully crafted dark stained hardwood bases and come with a UL approved 5' white power cord with an on/off dimmer switch and a replaceable 15 watt (maximum recommended) light bulb is included.
