Handmade in Bevagna, Italy. Why twisted candles? The answer came directly from Massimo, - The grapevines are twisted and thay give life through the wine that symbolizes the blood of Christ. In this medioeval village where the Guelfi, the pro papist group in the XIV century where strong, religion still has its place in history. The village of Bevagna which is set in the south of Perugia still cherish its artisan tradition producing glass, papper and candles. Nothing religious was said about the hamp and the beeswax, but today we know that the wax from the bees is not only more effective than parafin and also much better for our environment. The wick in hemp is double so you can imagine the size of the flame.
