 Product Description:

The simple but beautiful pattern of these Geometric Pillar Candles will make a real difference in any room you’d like to freshen up.

Enjoy and re-use: Did you know that each of these lovely fairtrade pillar candles lasts around 45 hours, and that you can re-use them? They’re made from two types of wax, with the external patterned wax frame being extremely hard and durable. This frame holds its shape, so you can enjoy your stunning candle time and time again by putting a tea light or small candle inside! When re-using, we recommend burning the candle down to one-third of its height in order to keep its shape.

A unique and beautiful pattern: 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 exceptional quality. As they’re handmade, no two candles will be exactly the same. The artisans shape these colourful pillar 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.

“Mighty is geometry; joined with art, resistless.” Euripides

Our Geometric Pillar Candles definitely are unique pieces of art in our opinion. So, make sure to buy one (or more!) if you’d like to decorate your home or surprise a friend with a stunning housewarming present. As all candles are handmade, please expect some differences in sizing and patterns.

How the candles are made: The wax is coloured by mixing pigments with hot wax, which is then poured into flat sheets. Sheets are marked, cut and then carefully layered according to the chosen design. The resulting slabs are compressed, extruded and re-extruded and then sliced into thin veneers. These veneers are then taken by the candle makers and skilfully stretched over a core of pure white wax and hand made into the desired shapes.

Sizing:
Medium Pillar: Approx. 9cm x 9cm
Burn time: approx. 45 hours

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! 😊
