Product Description:

Bring a little bit of Africa into your home. The candles are beautifully hand-decorated with a hard wax veneer on the outside and soft wax on the inside. As the candles burn, the light glows through the hard shell of the candle showing the design to the maximum effect. The shell of the Pillar candles can still be used even after the original inside wax is gone when refitted with a votive or tea candle. Both vegan-friendly and unscented, this candle is a beautiful addition to any home. So, go on, treat yourself!

Did you know that each of these lovely fair-trade candles lasts between 45 and 90 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 of the larger candles holds their 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.

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 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. 

"A thing of beauty is a joy forever."  – John Keats
