Maiden started 5 years ago in the heart of Dorset under the name of WackyShack, a name inspired from the garden shed where our original designs were conceived. Having for a number of years supplied candles for weddings we wanted to broaden our range by developing a unique style of candle for use everywhere.
After many trials and experiments over a year we came up with the Curve Candle, a flowing design with a simple structure which when burnt creates an even more interesting shape. The candles are decorated with items such as real dried roses and lavender, frankincense resin tears, hand covered fabric buttons and Indian vanilla pods. Each candle is fragranced with a scent to match their design. Our candles and gifts are all handmade and packaged by ourselves at our workshop and the candles are made by a method and recipe of our own, something that we have spent plenty of time perfecting to ensure our candles are not only something different but also give a high quality burn.
A great feature of the candles is that a pillar candle can be placed behind, which then illuminates the candle and creates a warm ambient glow. The small family business has gone from strength to strength with the enormous support from customers far and wide and we are looking forward this year to attending the City of Bath’s Christmas Market.
