Caravan Pacific

Caravan Pacific is a light-hearted manufacturer of handcrafted table lamps and accessories. Our company’s mission is to provide our customers with unique, well-made lighting while providing a fun and healthy environment for our workers. We’re inspired by those moments in life where light draws people closer together; rainy afternoons curled up with a good book, rowdy brunches with friends in the living room and heart-to-hearts with your children across the kitchen table. We love lighting but we realize that the most important glow comes from within.
