Founded in 2017 by designers Lola Lely and Yesenia Thibault-Picazo, London-based Wax Atelier “revisits traditional techniques,” as they say, “ranging from candle dipping, paper making, to crafted textiles using natural wax to waxed linen food wraps.”
Here’s a look:
Above: A bundle of Eight Green Tea celebration candles (£22). Each pack ranges in a palette of Mothers Milk, Moss and Seaweed. When lit, the candles release a subtle aroma of matcha tea and honey.
Above: For the Double-Dipped Twisted Candle (£12), a yellow beeswax candle is dipped in a mix of dyed beeswax. Above: A bundle of eight Celebration Candles in Pink Blossom (£22) are made with a fusion of beeswax and madder dye. Above: A set of ten Double-Dipped Birthday Candles is £15.
