Take a closer look at these enchanting designs. You’ll notice they incorporate the “hamsa” or open right hand motif, believed by many to be a symbol of good fortune and defense against evil. Every time you light them be reminded of the women in Bredasdorp, South Africa who painstakingly craft them. Many 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. Candle holders not included. Any variations in pattern and color reflect the hand-painted process.

Beautiful, but...

These candles are beautiful to look at, and the paraffin smells pleasant. But they burned down quickly - in about 4 hours - and dripped all over the place. I am still figuring out how to get the stains out of the tablecloths.

Beautiful Light

I purchased the hand painted candles as gifts for friends. They are beautiful and much appreciated. I will be buying more for myself and others. They are wonderful and who does not need more light?

AWESOME.. more than I bargained for!!

When I placed my order the first time, noone informed me that they were sold out. After waiting for quite some time for the delivery, I contacted the company and notified them I was not happy that I wasn't informed at the time of purchase that they didn't even have the item. (It was a Christmas gift that I had to ship) Anyway, they credited my account and I received notice they were back in. I loved them so much that I did end up reordering and absolutely LOVE them!
Thank you.

Beautiful light when we need it most

It's been a long, tough haul for the past two years, with more to come. Candles are a universal symbol of light and hope in times of need. Thanks for making such beautiful tapers available!
