Most candles are made using paraffin wax. Paraffin is a byproduct of the processing of petroleum which is non-renewable.
Soy wax is a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans. They are cleaned, cracked, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes from which the oil is extracted. The leftover bean husks are commonly used as animal feed.
Although some soy candles are blended with paraffin, ours are 100% soy.
As soy is grown mostly outside of Europe we are currently performing tests on a soy + rapeseed blend.
We've scoured our suppliers to source unique patterned fabric from decades of the past. From remnant off cuts to home + hotel window dressing, the fabric's potential origin is a conversation starter.
All fabric is laundered before construction begins. Some of our fabrics & lining tell their story. We've worked hard to minimise any imperfections on the final product. There are sometimes minor marks, thread nicks or discolouration and rarely, old stitch marks. These photos show a few examples.
If you are concerned about these points or receive your product and are unsatisfied, please contact us and we'll be happy to help.
