The lanterns represent the historical and fine craft traditions in Yemen. The beautiful patterns and the fine cotton fabric create a unique light experience.
The lanterns are produced by the Silver Smith in the old town in the capital Sana'a, but the production had almost stopped due to the ongoing conflict. In cooperation with Yemen Journey we have manged to restart the production and create new jobs.
They can be used with candles both inside and out.
