Tall Hand Painted Candles - Kileo Design (Box of 3)

$49.99 $63.78

Bring the culture and beauty of South Africa to your home with these Fair Trade, hand painted candles. KILEO signifies “modern” in Swahili and is portrayed through design and vibrant colors. Each candle measures ¾” diameter, 9” high plus ½” wick with a burn time up to 10 hours.

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.  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!

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!
