All the candles are individually hand poured and hand painted by artisans, most of whom are single mothers, making each a piece of art! Kapula uses only non-toxic color pigments, fully refined high quality paraffin wax, and cotton wicks. The candles are unscented and smokeless. Inspired by the colors of Africa, each design collection has a color 'theme' used in various patterns. Most designs are currently available in 7 sizes. These candles make a wonderful gift that keeps on giving! Fair Trade Gifts - Be part of Global Change!
