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!
