These candles are made from the pods of the Brazil Nut tree, one of the tallest trees in the Amazon Rainforest. Once the Brazil nuts have been harvested from the pod and sold in the local Peruvian market, the artisans transform a "waste" item, the pod, into a fine rain forest gift for you. The pods are filled with a combination of clean-burning paraffin wax, palm oil and fragrance to make these healing candles. Available in a variety of colors and fragrances, these earth-friendly candles make use of the rainforest's renewable resources and create jobs for Peruvian artisans. Price is per candle. Colors may vary slightly.

How it's made
In a vegetarian region of Rajasthan, India, the cultural art of leather craft and tooling is inherited through the generations. Cows are revered here, and hides are obtained only after an animal dies of old age or natural causes. Our leather is tanned using a vegetable tanning method, which protects the environment and tannery workers from toxic chemicals. Artisans then use water-based dyes or oils to color the leather. With a set of hand tools, each artisan applies love and skill to cutting, stitching, embossing and embroidering our leather journals, bags, and accessories.
Our 100% recycled cotton paper is made by artisans in Rajasthan, India, following a generations-old process. First, discarded cotton scraps are collected from the textile industry. Cotton is broken down into fibers using a traditional wheel press and then soaked overnight. Next, the pulp is strained, pressed into pages and hung to dry. After ironing, crisp pear goes either into journals or into the hands of artisans for screen-printing, embroidery or patchwork. The entire process is tree-free, non-toxic, and conserves and filters water for reuse in irrigation.
