This new colorful and festive collection is made from scraps of Alpaca wool fabrics woven on a loom in the mountains of the Andes.

The Andean civilizations of Peru are particularly known for their palette of bright colors that never lose their brilliance. It's all the know-how of weaving and pigmentation that makes this collection so unique.

But that's not all ! This collection is made from scrap fabrics. This means that all candles are different and each candle is unique and exclusive!

Just like the previous collections, the candles from the Aymara collection are filled with vegetable wax and are scented with our sweet “Forest Walk” fragrance based on cedar, maquis and a touch of eucalyptus.

Fragrance

Our candles are scented with a sweet woody scent, subtle and delicate, like a real invitation to travel. Close your eyes for a moment and escape to the rainforest between Argentina and Brazil in spring, or to the tall grass of the pampas in summer.

Confection

Our candles are handmade in Belgium. They are carefully cast by our master wax maker, before being brought back to our workshop to be dressed with Argentinian ropes and fabrics.

Sensitive to ecological issues, we attach particular importance to the choice of our materials. Everything has been thought of to design a candle that is respectful of your health and the planet.

The wax consists entirely of vegetable wax and does not contain paraffin. This formula guarantees a high quality candle, without carcinogenic substances or harmful to your health.

The wicks are cotton and are hand selected based on the size of each candle.

The rope that dresses your candle is 100% natural. We use jute ropes made of natural and biodegradable fibers to provide durability and strength to your candle.

The glass container is hand-blown in a family business.

using advice

We recommend that you follow the instructions for use and safety in order to enjoy your candle for as long as possible in a safe and peaceful manner.

Usage tips

  • When burning, let your candle burn until the entire surface is liquid to avoid the formation of craters, during each burn.
  • When burning , NEVER let your candle burn for more than 2 hours at a time to prevent the container from overheating and igniting.
  • After burning , take advantage of the fact that the wax is still melted to reposition the wicks in their original place.
  • After burning , clean the interior glass of the candle regularly to prevent soot from forming.
  • Each time you burn again , carefully cut the wicks to a maximum height of 0.6 cm to avoid smoke and soot deposits.
  • During the final burn, NEVER burn your candle to the last cm to avoid overheating the container. Always leave a cm of wax at the bottom. A candle that burns down to the last cm can cause the glass to shatter.

Safety tips

  • Never leave a candle burning unattended.
  • Place your candle away from drafts.
  • Keep your candle out of reach of children, curtains and pets.
  • Do not burn your candle on or near any flammable object
  • Do not place your candle near a heat source
  • Do not leave matches in the candle wax or near the candle
  • Always leave 20 cm between each burning candle
  • Extinguish your candle if it is smoking, if the flames are too high, or if there is only 1 cm of wax remaining.
  • Store your candle in a dry place and at room temperature
