Fabbrica delle candele is a dynamic workshop which thrives on the owner’s passion for a special material, wax, from which delicate and elaborate furnishing objects are made. There are two main product lines: Baroque-style candles and lucide follie, wax-treated flowers covered with vegetable resin. Original and elegant design objects, an idea patented by Anna Raddavero, who took over the business in 2010. The decoration stage requires a truly fascinating tool: a special “color palette” which consists in holding a small flame under spoons filled with wax colored exclusively with natural pigments.
