Creative of the week – T’s Candles

December 29, 2021

T’S Candle is a luxury, scented, handmade, and home-grown product. It was started in January 2021 inspired by the calm, relaxing, and soothing feeling of a candle scent. It is not just about candles; it goes a lot deeper than that to provide people with different shapes, sizes, structures, and scents that make it stand out from any of the regular candles you see at a shop. T’s candles have a top-notch team that is open-minded, understanding, and consistent that create these beautifully put candles for us.

In case you are wondering how these candles are made, they are paraffin-based wax with luxury fragrances and essential oils to make the scent durable. Paraffin waxes last a lot longer than ordinary waxes as they burn slowly and evenly. All the different colors and amazing fragrance oils that you smell using their candles are because of the paraffin waxes that hold both perfectly. Their cotton wicks complete their long-lasting candles by giving more burning time so that you don’t run out of candles quickly.

Tigist Tadesse, an entrepreneur born and raised in Addis Ababa, is the owner of this candle business. She has a bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Tourism Management. She had a chance to travel and observe the different cultures and lifestyles of people around the world. She has mentioned to us how that has helped her see how they use Candles in their daily lives. Tigist says “Whenever I have too much work or feel stressed and jet-lagged I will light a candle and relax, I also found out that with the Candle, a bottle of wine helps too.” As she began her journey to benefit others from this mind-relaxing routine, she found out that it is almost impossible to find scented candles in Addis Ababa. That was the moment she decided to start her own candle business.

Currently, T’s candles are working with more than four brands to launch a new product and scale up as they go. They are also working with local potters by making them supply different pottery products and helping them grow as well. We appreciate the values that T’s candles are providing to our community – from bringing a relaxing routine to the stressful daily lives that most people have to support local potters through creating job opportunities.
