  • "Uzima" stands for vitality, power and energy. Whether zebra skin, guinea fowl feather, cheetah skin, porcupine bristles or mysterious traces, the patterns were inspired by the infinitely rich wildlife of Africa and look almost animalistic.
  • Set of 3 Boxed Dinner Tapers. Eco-friendly box made from recycled materials. Candles measure approximately 9-inches tall x .75-inches in diameter. Burn time averages 10 hours.
  • Unscented, high-quality, fully-refined paraffin wax from Germany. Non-toxic color pigments and natural wicks. Individually hand-painted. Designs will have differences, but will be consistent in colors and icons that reflect the style.
  • Each candle is hand poured and hand painted by South African artisans with years of experience. After the candles are poured, they are handed off to the special background painters, who paint the entire wax candle with a base color that sets the tone for the design work. Masterful artists then paint the designs on each piece. It is truly exciting to watch the lightening-fast strokes of the paintbrushes transform what was molten wax into gorgeously colorful, individualized works of art!
  • Nobunto is a Sotho word which means “for the people”.
