Wax Industri is focussed on simplicity. Based in Indonesia, the organisation dedicated to crafting simply made candles which bring joy to lives through the purity of candlelight.

An ethical company through and through, Wax Industri isn’t only an advocate for fair trade – it puts people and handmade at the forefront of production. Handmade means more hands, more artisans, less unemployment, and a happier village. Success!

From a failed attempt to make colourful wax crayons, to a fortunate encounter with an American candle-seller, Wax Industri has come a long way. The organisation started with only five craftspeople, and now employs over 150 talented candlemakers to hand-pour ethical palm-wax candles of every shape, colour, and design.

Kind to People

These fair trade candles are poured by hand at Wax Industri, a small factory in rural Indonesia where the majority of the workers are female, and they enjoy good working conditions, fair wages and free healthcare benefits. Every Saturday afternoon, the candlemakers are offered additional training in weaving, knitting, sewing, and even driving! These are skills the workers can use at home or to earn a little extra income for their households. Many of the male candlemakers have proven to be quite talented dressmakers!

“The social impact that we see in this community is the growing family economy where the women enjoy more recognition from the society.”

(Wen Ping, Wax Industri Co-Owner)

Kind to planet

Each candle is made with 100% natural palm wax, which contributes to the sustainable production of palm oil. The oil palm tree is an ancient and sustainable crop with a higher yield than any other oilseed crop. No artificial pesticides or fertilisers are needed to help it grow. Palm wax is suitable for vegans and provides a clean, virtually dripless burn, with minimum soot and smoke.

“We could use machines to make our candles, but for these reasons, we prefer not to; handmade means more hands, more jobs, less crimes and a happy village. So we hand mould, pour and craft wherever possible.

(Wen Ping, Wax Industri Co-Owner)

Kind to you

Hand pouring allows for the utmost attention to detail, giving you a unique and premium candle with a pure cotton wick and solid colour wax (many cheaper candle producers simple dip a white candle in coloured wax so that it has the appearance of solid colour, but once you burn it down it is white on the inside). Due to their quality and composition, candles from Wax Industri have long burn times, so will be with you for many evenings to come.
