We are really excited to introduce our new brand Grace and James.
Grace and James is a Melbourne based, hand poured candle company founded by the beautiful Emma Davenport. All candles are made from all natural ingredients, including soy and coconut oil blended wax. Featuring a double wick for optimal burning, with a burning time of around 80 hours. Emma drew her inspiration for Grace and James from art, a love of home-wares and of course an obsession with candles. Grace and James has worked endlessly to source and develop a 100% local product using all natural and unique fragrances, but still keeping affordability in mind, this process took over 15 months to develop.
Grace and James have released an Artist Series range, collaborating with some of Australia’s favourite artists and designers (including us!). Each contributing their talent to creating bold, fun and inspiring designs to tell a story for each of the scents, allowing them to come to life.
