Blue hues recall sunlit days, making these candles a welcome accent beside dinner or a nightcap. Let each lighting of these hand-painted candles remind you of the talented women in Bredasdorp, South Africa, who make them. Many of these artisans support children and extended families through their craft, which is significant in a region with limited opportunities for sustainable work. Each candle is handmade using unscented paraffin wax and nontoxic color pigments. Candlesticks not included.
Any variations in pattern and color reflect the hand-painted process.
These candles are beautiful. I do wish the photos were more accurate in showing the colors. The ones I ordered for myself were much darker than expected; but they are lovely! I have ordered three sets now and will likely order more for friends.
I purchased handpainted candles while in Capetown SA many years ago. The Petalura candles are nice but not as long. Gave as gifts and recipients were very impressed. May purchase more earthy or golden tone in the future
