In the highlands of the Mexican state of Chiapas, artisans hand craft wax candles. In this region candles are mostly bought and used for religious purposes but there also exists a market for those simply interested in Mexican art and creativity. These artisans have been working in these traditional techniques from a very early age. They work within their community, meaning that they all work from home, making their work just a part of their daily life.
The candles can be customized in size and colour to meet any specific requirements.
