At Kassia, we return to the origins of artisanal candle production, now a tradition of luxury, to bring you something truly special and unique. We believe candles express beauty through decorative art, elevating the extra special experience of those unforgettable moments in time.
Candles have been an integral part of world history, dating back to at least 300 BC, with makeshift candles used in China, Japan and India for religious and ceremonial purposes. The joy of candle-making eventually became an official guild craft in 13th Century Europe. The “Chandlers” (hence ‘Chandeliers’) crated artisanal candles to illuminated the glory of Christendom. The 19th Century brought with it the industrial revolution and the mechanisation of candle making processes in 1834.
Quickly becoming ubiquitous in households across the lands, candles so remained until the arrival of the electric light bulb and then subsequently re-evolved to a predominantly decorative item of significance.
“Kassia candles has created something so completely elemental and unique that it carves its own indelible space within the world of the fine craft candles.”
