Created by Egbert-Jan Lam of Netherlands-based Burojet Design Studio, Stitches is a family of four well-hemmed pendants: Mopti, Tombuctú, Djenné and Bamako. Each light is named after a city or town in Mali, West Africa. Mali has a long history as a producer of embroidery, its many skilled artisans—found throughout Mopti, Tombuctú, Djenné and Bamako—adept at needlework.
The Stitches pendants impart an appealing bohemian air, their warm wood veneer panels embroidered with peeping threads of light. Crafted with passion and precision, Mopti, Tombuctú, Djenné and Bamako hint at the simple beauty found in Malian embroidery.
