Our Methods

All of our candles are "Made Fresh Daily" - 100% handcrafted at our San Francisco Bay Area facility - using techniques and processes unchanged since 1969. Only the highest-grade paraffin wax and wicks are used in the creation of our candles, despite increasing costs and cheaper alternatives. Our famous tapers are patiently hand-dipped a total of 36-38 times, and our pillars are each hand-poured three times to create a dense, uniform candle with a consistent flame and a superior, smokeless and dripless performance.


If you are ever in the neighborhood we invite you to give us a call to make an appointment for a tour, where you can see for yourself the craft and care that goes into the making of each Designers & Their Wax candle.
