About the lanterns
Yemen is known for unique handicrafts. This lantern will give a unique atmosphere to any home or garden.
The lanterns are designed and manufactured by traditional silversmiths and artists, both women and men, in the old town of the capital Sana'a, they can be used both inside and outside, providing a beautiful light that is filtered through the thin fabric and gives beautiful light patterns through the bottom and top produced by copper.
Production of the acclaimed and beloved lanterns from Yemen stopped when Yemen was isolated because of the war. Customers disappeared and the price of copper rose significantly. Warfair, together with Yemen Journey, has restored production and started importing the lanterns directly into the EU.
This is done in cooperation with the Little Sun and the solar lamp Little Sun Diamond has been integrated into the design. It will provide a unique combination of historical handicrafts from Yemen and a modern climate-friendly light source.

After decades of instability, Yemen has seen a devastating war since 2011 in which tens of thousands have been killed and millions internally displaced.
About 24 million, out of the total population of just over 28 million, need relief and close to two-thirds of the population live in extreme poverty.
Yemenis deserve and urgently need trade, jobs and income.
