Akkadian Candles

$38.00

Give a gift of light and love with these special Akkadian candles, handcrafted in Turkey and hand-poured by women in Iraq. Designed by Mimi Robinson, inspired by the gardens of Ancient Mesopotamia, these candles were created to bring economic opportunities for women in Iraq, as part of a collaboration with Prosperity Catalyst and the US State Department. At a time when many call for the closing of our borders to refugees, Prosperity Catalyst chooses to focus on those who remain in their homes despite the risks, and are equally deserving of assistance.

Choose from either the Garden Ceramic or Hammered Copper vessels. Made with the finest paraffin wax, (as soy is not readily available in Iraq), these candles have a very light, lavender and violet fragrance, and burn with a natural cotton wick. The larger candle measures 4" x 4" and burns for 65 hours, the smaller measures 3.25" x 3.75", and burns for 25 hours. Gift box and story card included.
