These natural candle holder vases are handmade in Kenya. They are hand-carved out of Kisii soapstone and then sanded until smooth. These feature an inner ledge to hold standard taper candles (the opening is approximately ⅞ inches wide). If the taper candle fit is too snug, try trimming up to 1 inch off the bottom of the candle for a better fit. These are also designed to hold dried flowers or botanicals as the center hole drops down within 1 inch of the base. For decorative use only with dried flowers or botanicals; not intended to hold water.
Why you'll love it: Your purchase supports artisans who might not otherwise have outlets for their work. Women often face additional challenges in finding fair employment, so working with women is especially important and prioritized.
Style this hand-carved vase candleholder on your bookshelf, mantle, or console table. Can be styled with dry or faux florals or taper candles.
Fair trade products are primarily handcrafted and made from natural, sustainable, and recycled materials, therefore slight imperfections and color variations may occur.
