Description

Intricately designed white patterned candles with gorgeous heart patterns.

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 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. 

“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” (William Morris)

Our Heart Candles are certainly beautiful, useful and ethical. So, make sure to buy one (or more!) if you would like something a little different in your home.

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

How the candle is 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.
