Pott’s foundations are in two very simple ideas: love your planet and support local artisan makers. Oh, and always be kind!
I once read an article, which said that in the UK every year 360 million candles are burned. The figure really stuck in my mind and all I could think was ‘what happens to all the empty candle pots?’. They’re either in the bin or, If you’re anything like me, you’ll have tucked them away in the back of a cupboard thinking one day you’ll find a use for them (still waiting for that day...there’s only so many make-up brush holders a girl needs!).
Every time I finished a candle I had this sense of guilt and always wondered why they can’t be reused or refilled. I decided I was going to do something about it and create a candle where you only need one Pott for the rest of your life.
I believe that small changes make a big impact. I want to make it easy for you to enjoy candles in a more sustainable way, whilst also supporting local and independent UK-based artisans.
The Potts are handthrown by potters across the UK. If you’re only going to have one candle Pott you may as well make it a nice one! And what is nicer than a product that has been lovingly handcrafted by a skilled artisan. Because the Potts are handmade, they are all slightly different and have their own little personalities...it is your own unique Pott, handcrafted by us, just for you.
All our candles are lovingly blended and hand-poured, using natural wax with 100% natural essential oils and sustainable fragrance oils. We regularly update our scents to match the seasons and make you happy!
The seasons will change and the scents will change, but your Pott is with you for the long haul.
