Our Roots

The first Africandle was born in 2018 out of a curiosity for concrete design and a triumphant DIY experiment (a brother’s homemade gift for his sister).

Now, just four years later, Africandles can be found worldwide.

We are proudly South African, our country’s power and grit are reflected in the raw, expressive textures of our candles and its beauty and serenity are felt in their warm glow.

From start to finish, each Africandle is made by hand. We pour the wax (and our hearts) into every candle and continually test new processes in the pursuit of the best burn experience.

While we strive for perfection in quality, the beauty of our candles lie in their imperfections. We celebrate every crack and crevice, letting the concrete develop naturally and allowing the wax to run its own course. This ensures that no two candles are ever the same.
