Lumi Candles is run by Canberra-local, Hannah Love. As a fist-timer to Handmade, 10 & 11 September (10am – 4pm), we asked her our questions:

1) What is your business all about?
Lumi was created to bring high quality affordable soy candles to the market, so that the luxury of a candle can be enjoyed more often. Lumi candles are made in small batches with 100% soy wax (no additives) and are hand poured in Canberra. We have selected quality glassware and we use HTP wicks which are made out of natural fibres. Our small batch process allows us to have a good control on the quality. We monitor the wax temperature and carefully measure the fragrance oil to ensure the correct ratio is used this results in a highly scented candle and a clean burn every single time!

2) What made you apply to Handmade?
I thought it would be a great opportunity to show my quality products to the locals.

3)Sum up your business in THREE words
Affordable everyday luxury
¬†Thanks Hannah – we’ll see you there!
