Mood-elevating colors and patterns make these candles a uniquely delightful accent on a mantel, tabletop or breakfront. When you light them while entertaining, be sure to share the story of the talented women in Bredasdorp, South Africa who so beautifully 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. Candlesticks not included.
I love these special candles. They are so beautifully crafted. My dining room is a fun place to be and these add whimsy. The colors are vibrant, the painted on shapes are intriguing. They are just as I had hoped they would be!
While I understand that these sorts of items will vary from order to order, I was disappointed to see that, instead of the shades of turquoise, green, and purple that I see in the product photograph, the candles that I received feature a lot of pink. Because it is a gift—for someone who dislikes pink, by the way—I am reluctant to tear away the packaging to get a good look at the candles and am hopeful that what I’m seeing is not a fair representation of the product itself.
We ordred a scarf and some decorative candles and received word they shipped with a tracking number. We saw they left one location and arrived at another shipping location and then nothing. We waited and never received the products. I contacted Petalura and they immediately duplicated the order and shipped it out. We received it and were very happy with the products. Petalura is a stand up organization and I will definetly do business with them again.
These are so beautiful!! Love them. I probably won't light them until I have a special occasion but I've put them on my dining table and they look fantastic. One set I'm saving for a present.
