The design team at Matr Boomie formulated a line of signature scent candles. It was important to source single-note, clean fragrance oils from which could create unique scents, using only ingredients that our customers could feel good about using. For that reason, only 100% soy wax and cotton wicks are used. The Kandu signature line also includes seasonal scents.
Believe it or not, much of the candle making process is quite scientific and math oriented and requires precise measurements and temperature control. Designers worked closely with the staff and maker group at Open Arms Studio to educate and train them in the candle making process so that they feel confident in their ability to produce high quality candles.
As with Matr Boomie artisan makers groups in India, Open Arms Studio is grateful for long term partnerships and projects like Kandu which provide ongoing, stable economic opportunities for the community of makers they work with. While this is their first time making candles, they are delighted by the opportunity and making beautiful things with their hands is what they like to do best as makers. Here is one quote from Maria about the overall work of new partnerships like this, “I have been working for Open Arms Studio for four years and now the most exciting thing is taking on a new project. If we just stay home we don’t learn. We work here and we learn something, and we have to support our family."
