Dipped Geometric Candle Holders
This Mugavu wood geometric tea light candle holder set provides warm ambiance with a stylish, modern design that will surely add a pop of color to any space. Each is hand-turned by lathe using solid Mugavu wood, sanded to perfection, hand dipped in vibrant paint, and varnished for a seamless finish.
Each product is handmade from start to finish in a workshop in Uganda—giving the pieces a heart, soul, and story. The designers work with master hand-craftsmen to create and curate unexpected, beautiful pieces mixing traditional craft with a modern style sensibility—designed for those who seek something uncommon from far-away places.
Investing in small businesses and creating market access through trade is one of the most tangible and sustainable ways to help Ugandans rise up in the development chain, so this social enterprise strives to build local businesses from the ground up, by contributing design experience while preserving traditional techniques, creating a high-quality product, providing access to foreign markets, providing business support and production assistance, as well as investing in new machinery. The products are purchased from the artisans and small businesses at their asking price. By providing our artisans with marketable and economically beneficial outlets for their skills, poverty is reduced and the livelihoods of these individuals and their communities are improved. These job opportunities empower both men and women, support families, and as a result, sustain communities.
These wood-crafted products are locally sourced from sustainable Ugandan National Forestry Associated vendors.

NOTE: Sold as a set of three. Each piece is handmade from start to finish by an artisan in Uganda and is therefore a one-of-a-kind piece. The color and size may vary slightly from the images shown – but we think that's part of what makes it so great. Please provide your own candles!
