Swazi Candles - Animals
The highly decorative Swazi Candles are hand-made in the small African Kingdom of Swaziland using the age-old technique 'Millefiore'
Millefiore, or "thousand flowers", first surfaced in ancient Alexandria but was perfected in the great glass-making cities of Murano and Venice.
The art of millefiore continues today in Swazi Candles. But instead of glass, the gifted candle makers of Swaziland use a special hard wax to create their colourful designs. The hard wax veneer forms the outer shell of the candle, which hardly melts when the candle is lit. Hence the rich, romantic glow of the illuminated exterior as the candle burns and the burn-again quality when refitted with the votive or tea candle.
