What we love about candles is to dream about the past - in 500 BCE the Roman dipped candles made from tallow, in China during the Qin dynasty around 206 BCE candles were made from whale fat, whereas in India, wax from boiling cinnamon was used for temple candles. And so we worked with Ieva Dexter who lives in Oregon, to create candles that are nostalgic to an ancient Greek time where candles were used to honor the goddess Artemis’s birth and as Ieva says, “made in the rain.” These handmade soy wax candles are hand made by Ieva, who hails from Latvia, and this is where she learnt about candle making from idyllic summer holidays in the countryside at her family. Her belief is that material honesty and embracing imperfections is what creates freedom in creativity.
