From Mexico to Massachusetts, this candle brings together the work of two communities and lights the way to a brighter future for artisans and their families.
The Amber & Orchid scented wax is hand poured by recently resettled refugee women from Burma who are rebuilding their lives in Southampton, Massachusetts. Each candle is made from soy blend wax, natural cotton wick and a floral fragrance containing essential oils.
The reusable etched glass vessel is made by Rose Ann Hall Designs (RAHD), an artisan workshop in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. In addition to skills training, RAHD provides educational and life skills programs to its small cadre of artisans, including several with physical disabilities who had never earned an income before.
