Product Description:

Why not go for a centerpiece with a difference this year?

Create a stunning Christmas candle centrepiece with these wonderful Christmas candles. The warm light of these wonders glows beautifully through the delicate patterns. Everyone will be curious about where you got them from! (You can tell your guests it was a lovely ethical home decor shop in the heart of the Cotswolds!)

Handmade and fairtrade  – they look stunning when lit as the candlelight shines through the harder exterior wax pattern.

Both vegan-friendly and unscented, they make fantastic gifts for friends or a lovely treat for yourself. Enjoy a splash of colour in your home!

Did you know that, depending on their size, each of these lovely fairtrade candles lasts between 12 hours and 45 hours? And they glow beautifully when lit!

Each candle in our collection has been expertly crafted by professional candle-makers in the mountain kingdom of Eswatini, so you can be sure of their exceptional quality. As they’re handmade, no two candles will be exactly the same.

The artisans shape these candles using the ancient ‘millefiori’ technique, which was perfected in Italy to create the finest glass sculptures. This technique was then translated into use with wax.  

As all candles are handmade, please expect some minor differences in sizing and patterns. 

Size
Mini Pillar
6cm high by 7cm wide
Burn time: Approx. 15 hours

Mini Cube
5cm high by 5cm wide
Burn time: Approx. 15 hours

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

Care Instructions:

  • Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch (0.6 cm).

  • Remove all packaging before use and place your lovely candle in a suitable container capable of containing any wax spillage.

  • Although the candle is generally self-contained, we advise using a heat resistant coaster or similar.

  • Burn your 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 your candle with a snuffer or the back of a metal spoon. Take care not to damage the wick.

  • Pour off any molten wax, if necessary, to enhance the flame.

  • Lean back, relax and enjoy!
