Product Description:

PRE-ORDER NOW AVAILABLE – For delivery mid-July.

These wonderful Fairtrade Giraffe candles have been handmade by expert candle-makers in the mountain Kingdom of Swaziland. Ethical and beautiful – each one lets off an amazing glow when they are lit as they glow through the patterns. They make the perfect unique gifts for giraffe lovers – ethically sourced, fair trade and beautiful! Not only that, but the larger candles are reusable so you can turn them into a giraffe candle holder after burning! 

The artisans create the candles using the ancient technique of ‘millifiore’, which was a skill perfected in Italy to create the finest glass sculptures and has been translated into use with wax. These Giraffe candles are beautiful, useful and ethical are made using high-grade paraffin that is long-lasting.

Size
Mini Cube: Approx. 5.5cm x 5.5cm – Burn time approximately 12 hours.

Mini pillar: Approx. 5.5 x 6cm – Burn time approximately 12 hours.

9cm Pillar Approx. 9cm x 9cm – Burn time approximately 45 hours. (These sizes are reusable due to the hard outer wax maintaining its shape – therefore you could add a tea light and keep using it as a giraffe candle holder forever!)

Care Instructions:

  •  Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch.

  • Remove all packaging before use and place the candle in a suitable container capable of containing any wax spillage. Although the candle is generally self-contained a heat-resistant coaster or similar is advised.

  • Burn the candle away from drafts and for no more than a couple of hours at a time (this prevents the hard outer wax from melting)

  • Extinguish the candle with a snuffer or the back of a metal spoon, taking care not to damage wick.

  • Pour off molten wax if necessary to enhance flame.
