Behind the Brand
Wax Atelier was founded in 2017 by designers Lola Lely and Yesenia Thisbault -Picazo. This London-based duo is passionate about craft and the making process, the interconnection between the natural world and material culture. They now manufacture their wax products in East London, employing a team of artisans from the local community and share their love of traditional candle-dipping by running masterclasses and workshops.
Wax Atelier makes candles, paper and textiles using pure beeswax and cotton wicks. From Blood Orange to Mother's Milk, their colour palettes evoke the natural world and carry a faint smell of honey. They also use natural products to fragrance their candles, such as matcha and green tea, creating a gentle fragrance for any room. Drawing on traditional and sustainable techniques, they also produce wax wraps that provide an alternative to plastic wrapping and foil.
