Brighten the evenings and let your light shine with these lovely taper candles. Women in a craft studio in Bredasdorp, South Africa, paint each one entirely by hand. As you light them in the company of family and friends, know that you are part of a shared wish for peace and safety, creativity and community, across the ocean and around the world.
Any variations in pattern and color reflect the hand-painted process.
Candles drip some so must have a drip catcher edge to prevent damaging your tablecloth. The wicks come a bit short and burnt out, needing a bit of work to relight. Keeping the paint away from the wick and/or leaving wax on the wick during production will probably heip.
I am very pleased with the hand-painted candles from Petalura. They are so unusual, creative and crafted with care. I know I will be buying more in different patterns. I love that it is supporting A worthy cause as well.
Petalura is to be commended for its excellent and courteous customer service.
The red, gold, and white tapers look fantastic on my dining room table. I am very pleased !!
These white, red and gold tapers and pillar candles are even more beautiful than pictured in the catalogue. The craftsmanship and decoration exceeded my expectations. Our table will be spectacular with them in the evergreen centerpiece.
