History

Our story began in 1992 when our candle factory was established. Our direction and aim were to produce unique, high-quality and handmade candles with a Czech origin.

During 25 plus years in market we have produced over 15 million decorated, individually orientated candles for you and our partners. We have learnt to work with many different types of technology which make our candles unique around the world. We immediately realised that the only value is the quality and care of each candle.

Here we introduce our important milestones with the help of a timeline. You will see that since establishing our company we have not been idol and thanks also to you we have made a long journey during which we have made many positive twists. Thank you for being here with us!

About our manufacturing process

Candles are made using the unique Unipar technology, which uses hydrocarbon as a main material which does not contains sulphur or oils.

Candles are not moulded but made by a cold press resulting in the change of a candle’s material during burning into only vapour and carbon dioxide.

Unipar Technology also ensures that the wick does not drown in the candle and that the candle’s flame stays high and pure without any wax running down.
