brand Sthlm Ljusstöperi
Since 2011, Mimmi Warensjö Forss and Håkan Eriksson have produced handmade candles in a combined studio and store on Södermalm in Stockholm. The area, in the southeast of the city, was home to the world’s largest candle manufacturer from the 1840s until the 1960s. With help from their son Christoffer the wife-and-husband company Sthlm Ljusstöperi makes 240 candles a day, each carefully dipped and shaped by hand. A perfect balance of stearin, paraffin, wax and wick results in candles that melt evenly and do not soot, and that burn slowly with a calm and non-flicking flame.
