Ester and Erik create candles by using methods that have been used for centuries.
Ester and Erik candles come in a selection of exquisite colours, each pair of taper candles are cut from the wax frame and then beautifully packed in a gift sleeve.
The candles are ideal to be given as a dinner party gift, or treat for someone special.
The candles are made in Denmark, and are produced in the traditional style of candle-making.
The time-consuming process involves an individual cotton wick dipped into liquid paraffin, until it reaches the required thickness.
This traditional dipping technique offers tangible advantages over cheaper mass produced candles - the candles burn slowly with a steady flame, and without dripping, are odourless and emit no soot.
They extinguish themselves when they have burned down or use the cute brass tweezer snuffer see here.
