Classic Art Lamps


Classic Art Lamps (CAL) started in the year 1968 by Mr. Joseph Mathew Moolayil, had the vision of producing genuine, creative and artful pieces of lamps, to those who truly appreciated art around the radiance of light. Started as a small home based business with very few artisans, CAL unfurled into the very first south Indian business model to win the most prestigious award in the arena of lamps and lamp shades.

As times have changed, CAL has incorporated the latest trends into the line of work keeping intact the values imparted by Mr. Moolayil without compromising on the quality of materials used in the making of lamps. Now the third generation of Moolayil family, who runs the business still holds on to these values of transparency, honesty, justice and hard work in achieving success in business. They travel across the length and breadth of the country to meet potential buyers and valued clients.

Unlike the stereotypical lamps that evolves out of technology and machinery, CAL initially relied on the bare hands and basic tools of craftsmen in and around their small town of changanacherry. Some of the pieces of art still needs time tested methods to be manufactured, but the fine art that evolves out of it is impeccable and unparalleled. Mr. Pious Joseph, the son of Mr. Moolayil and his wife Mrs. Mariamma Pious plays an integral role in the continued success in the business of CAL. Mrs. Mariamma has bagged the Best Woman Entrepreneur Award, 2007 by KSSIA and the National Award for Quality by the then Union Minister, Mr Oscar Fernandes in the year 2005. Malayalam magazines like Vanitha, Veedu, Sthreedhanam, Dhanam have all featured her works of excellence in business. Rotary club of Alleppey, Assumption college, Changanacherry and Media Village, Changanacherry have also honoured Mrs. Mariamma for her success in business.

Some of the most popular and splendid resorts and hotels have also chosen CAL to light up their lounges, conference halls, rooms, gardens and what not! If you choose to customize your lights, CAL is the best place to go to, blending both traditional and contemporary ideas to suit your needs and tastes.
