Meet the Artist: Kapula
Kapula, a certified Fair Trader, is located in Bredasdorp, a small community in the southernmost region of South Africa. This family run business employs local people and train them to be crafters of these beautiful products, providing them with sustainable employment to help them to take care of themselves and their families.
Using traditional methods, the candles are hand poured, hand painted, and hand packaged. Only non-toxic pigment and fully refined wax are used for candle production creating a long burn time that only gets better as the flame lowers in the candle and glows from within showing off the artistry and colors. The many designs and beautiful display of colors used on the candles are all influenced by the warmth and deep richness of the African landscape and heritage.
No patterns or stencils are used in painting these beautiful products, so each is a special piece of art!
