What Are People Saying About NOBUNTO Candles?

Frequently Asked Questions

How Are NOBUNTO Candles Made?

NOBUNTO hand-painted candles reflect the culture and influences of South Africa. They are manufactured by NOBUNTO artisans with over 15 years’ experience and are guaranteed Fair Trade.

The manufacture of these hand-painted candles is a multi-faceted process. In the first step the background colours are painted by special background painters. Then the various designs are expertly painted by the artists, the quality is carefully controlled, and then carefully packed for shipping. The most exciting moment comes when the lightning fast strokes of molten wax metamorphose into gorgeously colourful, individualised works of art.

Where Are NOBUNTO Candles Made?

Proudly South African was established in 2001, born out of the 1998 Presidential Job Summit which was convened by the late former President Nelson Mandela. Like all government initiatives, its purpose is to work to combat the triple challenges of poverty, inequality and above all, unemployment.

How Do You Offset Carbon?

We plant a tree with every item purchased on our store. Purchase 3 NOBUNTO Candles & we'll plant 3 trees — offsetting carbon from shipping by reforesting lands with native flora, not quick grow tree farms.

We do this with the help of Ecologi & The Eden Reforestation Project. They partner with villages committed to restoring their forests. Hiring and training local villagers to plant new trees.

They only plant native tree species. And the villages protect their new forests because they have a vested interest in them. See more here.
