We collaborated with Nadia Maneechote, the illustrator of by Persimmon, to create our Giving Candle in honor of the charity The Trevor Project! We wanted to create a candle that could tell a story by being a piece of artwork while supporting a cause close to our heart. Each season the cause and the artwork will change but the mission will stay the same. To GIVE to our community near & far. We hope this candle serves as a conversation starter and warms your heart each time you light it.
