This gift boxed Nobunto pillar candle has been individually hand-painted in a bright, ethnic pattern. The design is called Bongazi a Swahili word.

•   The rich colours and gold painted highlights will look stunning once the candle is lit.
The flame burns down the centre of the candle, thereby creating the glow in which the external painted effect is clearly visible. This results in a very beautiful "lantern" effect.

•   Comes in an attractive eco-friendly cardboard presentation box.
•   Non drip. Made from fully refined paraffin wax with a high melting point of 58°- 60°. 
The high quality wick has been imported from Germany where the candles were safety tested.
•   The colours contain no carcinogenic, mutagenic, or reproductive toxics substances.

These Fair Trade candles have been handmade by skilled artisans in South Africa
Each candle is unique as it is hand-painted by the artist, adding a personal touch to each piece.
Slight variations may therefore occur from item to item - but this only adds to the uniqueness of this work of art.
