Another "new to us" maker from the UK. WAX Atelier makes the most lovely candles. All candles are naturally colored, hand-dipped candles made with European beeswax and unbleached cotton wick.
The Reds & Pinks have the addition of rose wax, while the Yellow & Greens has green tea wax. Both smell divine!
These little candle bundles make a lovely gift for the hard to shop for - or to add a little light to your own table or sideboard.
About WAX Atelier
Tradition & Innovation
Wax Atelier re-visits traditional techniques ranging from candle dipping, paper making, to crafted textiles using natural wax. Making becomes a tool to experience the interconnection between the natural world and material culture.
WAX Atelier was founded in 2017 by multi-disciplinary designers Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo, in London.
Our products are manufactured in Poplar, East London, by a team of trained artisans, originating from the local community.
Environmental & Social Impact
Sustainability is at the core of our brand ethos. Most of our materials are locally sourced and our production is all done in-house using environmentally low-impact processes.
From its early days, Wax Atelier was founded with a strong interest in knowledge sharing. Creative workshops were proposed to diverse audiences. In 2020, with the support of the charity Participatory City Foundation, Lola and Yesenia trained a cohort of makers from Barking during a 3 months-long program.
At present, Wax Atelier counts approximately 10 employees, and is proud of the varied cultural and ethnical backgrounds of its team: a rich mix of makers from the local community, experienced designers and young graduates.
