A big sister to our popular Salt Votive, this pure, simple Salt Candleholder is carved from Egyptian Salt that’s compressed deep beneath the ground near the oasis of Siwa, Egypt. For generations local artisans have sourced this dense, durable material to make beautiful, functional objects. Stripes of grey-brown sand are visible in the Candleholders, remnants of thousands of years of sandstorms in the area.
Simply add a Beeswax Votive Candle to create soft, flattering light that’s filtered through the salt crystals.
Note: Store in a dry place and avoid liquid as the salt will dissolve. Use with tea lights only.
10 years ago, Danish native Malou Lenskjold visited her cousins Ellen and Henrik Raven who lived in the Siwa Oasis in the Sahara Desert. Inspired by local handcrafts and materials in the region, Malou, Ellen, and Henrik launched their family-based company, Sirocco in 2010 and introduced Egyptian made products to the Danish market. Working with local artisans, Sirocco designs and creates a wide range of furniture and accessories from natural materials including salt, alabaster, copper, stone, wool, and cotton. All products are made using ancient handcrafting traditions that have been handed down from generation-to-generation.
