Ester Erik Candles
Hand-dipped, elegant quality candles made from the purest raw materials all the way from Denmark
Bringing out to you, a family owned company, Ester & Erik, making elegant and quality candles. The quality of the raw materials and the unique final appearance of the candles will light up and adorn your home space.
These candles are natural products made from wax, wick and dye of the highest quality – the same raw materials that have been in use since the company was established in 1987. The candles are made from 100% paraffin wax of the purest quality available, which can be heated and used without the need to add any artificial ingredients. The wick is made of 100% pure cotton, while both the dyes and lacquers are water-based and therefore contain neither acetone nor aniline.
Amalgamation of traditional craftmanship and modern technology
Candles are made using both traditional craftsmanship and modern technology. This has empowered to keep up with the demand and growth in export business. As today, it is supplemented by robots to wick the dipping frames, and on the other hand, candles are coloured using hands.
Unique colour look based on innovative craftsmanship
An over-dipping wax which allows the entire colour palette to come into its own. The over-dipping wax also has a bearing on the depression which forms around the wick when the candle burns. The wax ensures that the depression is exactly the right size to prevent the wick from drowning and the candle from dripping.
The quality of a candle is determined by the quality of the raw materials, and for more than 30 years we have – uncompromisingly – used the same good raw materials to create natural candles without any artificial additives. All our candles are made using paraffin wax with the highest possible melting point, which means that our candles burn more slowly; in fact, 30% longer than other candles.
A sustainable approach
The quality of the candles depends on the purity of the paraffin wax which is used. These candles are made from the most highly refined paraffin wax – in other words, you will not find a cleaner product from a more natural raw material.
In terms of sustainability, paraffin wax has the smallest carbon footprint and the least environmental impact of all waxes.
100% cotton wicks
All our wicks are made from 100% pure cotton, which is completely lead-free.
Frames made from recycled plastic
The top and bottom of the frame are made of recycled plastic with uprights made of iron, one of the most environmentally friendly raw materials available.
