Both compact and easy to carry, our handmade mini tapers can be used during meditation, on an altar for remembrance, as a call to prayer or simply to grace a dinner table. Every one of these pieces is individually poured by hand, using unbleached Mexican beeswax and pure cotton wicks. Burn time for a single candle is typically around an hour and a half. These tapers are nearly dripless, smokeless and virtually scent-free. They’re sold in bundles of six and are packed in corn husk with natural string. We can also have these pieces made in white, bleached beeswax, by special order.
The master artisans that produce our candles collaborate on custom orders as three generations in their family workshop. Famed for their ornate traditional beeswax candles with natural dyes, this family also constantly strives to develop new designs that speak to a contemporary audience on a worldwide basis. They dip every one of these beeswax candles by hand, exclusively for our stock. In addition to their candles, this family also also produces handwoven wool rugs and other vibrant tapestries.
Each candle is approximately 10cm long x 1cm on the bottom
Store these pieces in a cool, dry location. Do not leave candles unattended while they are burning. As these mini tapers are hand-poured, the bottoms may be slightly larger than our candle holders. In this case, you can simply cut a small bit of the edge with a knife to fit, in order to fit the candles into the piece.
The noted price is for one bundle of beeswax mini taper candles that are tied with corn husk and string, as featured. The jacaranda wood candle holder is not included. Given the nature of handmade, pieces may vary slightly from the featured product image.
