The soft inner core creates a translucent lens that
spreads the light throughout the entire candle bringing
the pattern to life as soon as it is lit.
Swazi Candles are reburnable! Candles remain beautifully intact during countless burnings. The hard outer pattern wax allows reburning simply by inserting a votive candle in the well created by the melting soft inner wax.
These designs, like the light from Africa itself, have become renowned as their glow spreads around the world.
Swazi Candles are handmade in the small African Kingdom of Swaziland using the age-old trade bead technique perfected in the glass making city of Murano, Italy. This technique was adapted and utilized in the African candle making craft.
Swazi artisans apply these beautiful patterns by hand. Each candle differs slightly reflecting the artisan’s interpretation..
Wrapped and tagged, these unique candles make imaginative gift ideas and seasonal displays for Christmas, Kwanzaa, Easter, Mother's Day, or Father's Day. Imagine the delight of your friends and family when they receive a handmade Swazi Candle for a special occasion, party or wedding favor. A very personal gift brought to them all the way from Africa.
