Geometric pillar candles


This simple but beautiful pattern 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 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 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 home-warming 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.

About Swazi Candles – Proud founding members of SWIFT (Swaziland Fair Trade Association)

Swazi Candles was started in an old cowshed of a former dairy in 1982 by two South African art graduates. The little workshop soon gained a great reputation for producing unique candles and started attracting many visitors.

    Absolutely gorgeous candles. I love the glow they create and the colours are absolutely beautiful. I first brought one for myself but as they are so lovely have gone on to buy them as gifts for friends and family.

  2. Hanna

    These are my favourite candles. They look so beautiful when lit and look great in my home too. I will continue to buy these again and again.

  3. Renée

    I splashed out on four of the green and light green geometrical candles. The patterned glow once they burn down low enough makes for very calming and elegant bathing. Aesthetically pleasing both lit and unlit!
