This set of of 3 candles comes from Nobunto, a fair trade company, based in Napier, South Africa. The design is called Matuko which means Elegance in Swahili.

Burn time +-8 hours.
68mm in height and 48mm in width

It is made from fully refined paraffin wax with a high melting point of 58°- 60°; the high quality wick was imported from Germany where the candles were safety tested. The colours contain no carcinogenic, mutagenic, or reproductive toxics substances.

The candle should only be left burning for 2-3 hours during the first and second usage. The cooling off/down phase until the next ignition/usage should be at least 1 hour. The candle should not burn longer than 2 hours during subsequent usage. The reason for the above is that the flames, in order to create the desired ”lantern effect”, burn down in the centre of the candle, thereby creating the glow in which the external painted effect is clearly visible. However, this very beautiful ”lantern effect” produces enormous heat inside the candle which can also cause the outer walls of the candle to melt, thereby causing molten wax to leak and run out.
