PRODUCT INFORMATION

These globally-inspired hand-painted candles are small works of art. Crafted by artisans in South Africa, each candle is hand-poured and then individually hand-painted. Each design name is derived from a special African word that is brought to life through the color and patterns which reflect the culture and influences of South Africa. The style images pictured illustrate the general design, but note that each candle is one of a kind.ย  A truly unique and beautiful gift for hostesses, housewarming, wedding, anniversary, and more that make a striking addition to every home and a beautiful conversation piece!

Design Meanings:

  • "Bongazi" is an African word that encapsulates the noble and luxurious powerful, earthy tones and traditional patterns of Africa.ย 
  • "Zahabu" represents the golden one. Whether as a yellow glittering disk in the midday sky or as a glowing red fireball in the evening, when it grazes the horizon, the sun determines the rhythm of life in Africa.
  • "Kileo" signifies "modernโ€ and is portrayed through design and earthy colors.
  • "Uzushi" signifies discovery and is portrayed through traditional designs and colors that reflect the earth and sky.
  • "Kukomo" signifies immortal in Yoruba and is portrayed through design and vibrant colors.ย 
  • "Uzima" stands for vitality, power and energy. Whether zebra skin, guinea fowl feather, cheetah skin, porcupine bristles or mysterious traces, the patterns were inspired by the infinitely rich wildlife of Africa and look almost animalistic.
  • "Matuko" design reflects elegance in the bright colors of African fabrics and ornamental curves.
  • "Indabuko" means source or origin. To this origin, we return with this traditional design. Typical African colors, shapes and patterns are impressively presented.
  • "Farih" is an African word that symbolizes happiness, gladness and joy.

The Story Behind the Art:

Each candle is hand poured and hand painted by South African artisans with years of experience. After the candles are poured, they are handed off to the special background painters, who paint the entire wax candle with a base color that sets the tone for the design work that comes next. Masterful artists then paint the designs on each piece. It is truly exciting to watch the lightening-fast strokes of the paintbrushes transform what was molten wax into gorgeously colorful, individualized works of art!
