We love passing this information on by creating candles for other luxury brands. Our bespoke candle service has become very popular within the creative industry and it's so exciting to work with different brands as their briefs are all so varied.
We work with a host of UK manufacturers including glass decorators, fragrance houses, ribbon printers and packaging suppliers. It is very important for us to support British manufacturing, and we feel that not only does this ensure that we get the highest quality, but also that we support our country's various industries. It also means we cut down on global transportation and unnecessary air or freight miles.
Scent is a passion for us. We have now built up an extensive scent library which our clients can choose from, but we can also create bespoke fragrances, which is a really exciting and involving creative process.
Our scent library consists of over 20 fragrances that we are constantly adding to. We burn trial every fragrance to make sure it burns cleanly and evenly and we also ensure that the fragrances disperse efficiently and fill the surrounding space.
With our in house design team we can design you your perfect candle with your companies branding on.
We truly put every effort in to making this creative process as fun as possible.
A lot of our clients use their bespoke candles for marketing, PR, corporate gifts and as a product to sell alongside their existing lines. For any further questions about our bespoke service please contact us at bespoke@wickandtallow.
We recently documented the production process that each of our candles goes through from pouring to packaging in our UK factory, detailing just how much work goes into each individual one. Many hands make great candles, as they say!A huge thanks to Broxstar Productions for their help in putting this together.
We had a pretty busy Small Business Saturday at Wick & Tallow! The BBC popped in to interview us about the business a couple of days before, and then Sky News dropped in on Small Business Saturday to find out our views on the initiative. Have a look at the great videos below!
This week and next (6th - 19th October) Wick & Tallow is joining the Camden Collective at their pop-up shop at 159 Camden High Street. Both our Bold and Floral Collection will be available with a 15% event discount. There's a mix of other brands in store too, making starting your Christmas shopping very easy indeed! Choose from Blank Inside (featured in today's Metro!), ceramics from Eleanor Stuart, scarves and accessories from Tuff-Love, clothing from An Original Leroy and lots more. There's even a great coffee shop courtesy of Terrone & Co that sells incredible treats from The Meringue Girls!
Wick & Tallow will be exhibiting their range of candles at Best of Britannia in the Farmiloe Building in Clerkenwell from 2nd - 4th October 2014.
