Candle Factory

Discover the journey of the candle.
Watch it as it goes through the three shapers :
The Wicker, the Dipper, and the Presser.

The Wicker using wax hardens the wick around a frame giving the candle a spine.

The Dipper dips the wick so that it becomes a candle.
The number of dippings defines its size.

The Presser reshapes the candle to give it its final shape.

The shape of the candle is a testimony to their action.
This journey is staged in a shop, displayed before the eyes of the customer .
Seeing the shapers create the candle allows them to understand how it is made,
triggering fascination and adding value to the candle.
