Our Story | Kandilá Candle & co.
Kandila Candle & co. [ Kan-di-lá ]
Our brand name came from the word 'Candle' in Tagalog (Philippines). Kandilá began as a quarantine hobby. As the UK fell into its second lockdown in November 2020 due to the global pandemic of Covid-19. It inspired many of us to unleash our creativity and for us, it inspired us to explore and curate our signature scents based on where we grew up, Philippines, the land we call home.
Coming up with 'Kandilá Candle & co.' as our brand name means something special, it means endless possibilities which we as a company strive to follow. In addition, Kandilá co. sounds like 'Kandilá ko' which translates to 'my candle', making it very personal. #KandilaKo Use our hashtag when posting your candles on your social media!
Unlike mass produced home fragrances, all of our products are curated and hand-poured in small batches at a time in the heart of our home here in Surrey, UK. Starting as a small business, it means that we provide the utmost care and attention to detail from pouring, labelling, to packaging, making any purchase the most thoughtful gift, The candles that you will receive have been made with love, prepared and packed by the same pair of hands.
