When olive oil was still being made in old presses, the olives were crushed and placed on top of “seiras or capachos” (a kind of mats made of sisal), which after being pressed, and going through a series of other processes, gave rise to the olive oil. In North of Portugal, where I come from, as in many other parts of Portugal, mills like this are already disappearing and this is my way of remembering them – bringing the shape of the “seira” to a wall lamp.
This wall lamp has a ceramic base that holds the crochet disk, which is handmade in sisal, and at the same time is the piece that attaches to the wall.
When turned on, this wall lamp gives a warm and welcoming light that looks good as a spot of light in a room, or even as a bedside table lamp.
The kit does not include a light bulb. We recommend to use energy-saving light mirror bulbs. Bulb: max power 60W. Fits an E27 lamp holder.
