BACK IN STOCK: OAK CANDLES

unnamed

OAK candles are now back in stock by popular demand. Each OAK Candle is designed to evoke a moment and place – an intersection, to be exact – in time in New York’s history. The candle shape and its glass container evoke the tall votive candles that are ubiquitous in NYC bodegas and corner stores. Each candle is hand poured in Brooklyn and burns for 100+ hours.
