We're a family (by marriage and just because) with a passion for adventure and the outdoors. Our travels have inspired us to bring the magic of nature to homes across the country in the form of candles poured by hand and with heart.

Ellie and Jack Tate

Lovers of both the mountains and the sea, Ellie and Jack hand-pour every candle in Charleston, South Carolina. When they’re not creating, labeling, and shipping, you can find them on or near the water, most likely with a good beer in hand and their spotted dog, Scout.
