Product Information



These globally-inspired hand-painted candles are small works of art. Crafted by artisans in South Africa, each candle is hand-poured and then individually hand-painted. Each design name is derived from a special African word that is brought to life through the color and patterns which reflect the culture and influences of South Africa. The style images pictured illustrate the general design, but note that each candle is one of a kind. Creates a calm ambiance that transforms any space into a personal sanctuary. A truly unique and beautiful gift for hostesses, housewarming, wedding, anniversary, and more that make a striking addition to every home and a beautiful conversation piece!

In Swahili, "Shahida" reflects the exciting atmosphere in the lively market: colorful fabrics, colorful masks, drum music and dancing people testify to African joie de vivre.
