When you light one of these vibrant, hand-painted candles, consider it a moment of connection with the women in Bredasdorp, South Africa, who make them. Many support children and extended families through their craft, which is significant in a region with limited opportunities for sustainable work. Handmade using unscented paraffin wax. Candlesticks not included.
Any variations in pattern and color reflect the hand-painted process.
I broke each package into two gifts to save money. All my friends were delighted!
My daughter and son-in-law were thrilled to receive these candles for Christmas and to learn the story about the family creators in So Africa. For this Covid Christmas we exchanged gifts for the home and self-care. These candles were paired with hand-quilted placemats.
