Candles

Design

Our hand-painted candles reflecting the culture and influences of South Africa. They are manufactured by our artisans with over 15 years experience and are guaranteed Fair Trade. The manufacture of our hand-painted candles is a multi-faceted process. In the first step the background colours are painted by special background painters. Then the various designs are expertly painted by the artists, the quality is carefully controlled, and then carefully packed for shipping. The most exciting moment comes when the lightning fast strokes of molten wax metamorphose into gorgeously colourful, individualised works of art.
