About Annise Designs

Annise Designs (pronounced an-niece) was formed in 2014. The name came from mine and my daughter's middle name. I've always had a love of candles and decided to start making my own for myself and for friends. The business has grown since then and now stocks a few selected stores. (see Stockists page)

How the candles are made

All the candles are hand poured at my home in Patangata in Central hawkes Bay.
The candles are made from soy wax which is derived from soy beans. Soy wax is a renewable resource and contains no unnatural additives. Soy wax burns cleaner than paraffin wax. Soy wax is eco-friendly, sustainable and is non-toxic.
Only 100% cotton wicks are used - which means they are zinc free.
The fragrances used do not contain any: phthalates, paraffin or UV inhibitors.

We hope you enjoy your candle as much as we do
