LanternShop.com is Brought to You by Traders of Tamerlane
We are a small business making hand-crafted American-made camping yurts and desiging & importing artisan-crafted lanterns. Our story began in 2004 in a basement in New Jersey where we built our first yurt. Born from a growing interest in historical re-enactment and in and many eastern cultures, we began taking our yurts to faires, festivals, and reenactment events - and building more yurts.
A Gift of Light
As our interest in history and craft grew, we were gifted a beautiful Moroccan lantern of metal and glass. The first time we hung the candle-lit lantern on the roof of our yurt and experienced its starry canopy and colored glow - a passion was born. Our shop yurt became a home for lanterns of every kind.
Treasures of the East
This moment drove us to discover the craftspeople that kept the tradition of iron and glass lanterns alive today - a craft that is a blend of African, Persian, European, and Indian cultures. Now, we have strong partnerships with small business artisans all across Asia to offer unique, small-batch lanterns along with exclusively in-house designed styles.
Style & Elegance
We take pride in bringing you authentic lanterns directly from a variety of countries in Central and South Asia, and North Africa. Our unique pieces are a combination of our exclusive designs and the great skill of talented artistans with a history of handicraft going back generations. Heart and soul goes into every piece to creating stunning works of art that will add warmth and beauty to any space.
Thank you for taking the time to explore our collection.
We look forward to helping you find the perfect lanterns and Moroccan-style decor for your home.
