Beeswax is the cleanest, brightest and longest burning candle wax. Unlike many other candles, burning beeswax actually purifies the air while emitting a subtle scent reflective of the nectar and honey stored in the honeycomb (it takes 10kgs of honey to make 1 kg of beeswax) - the scent will vary depending on what wildflowers the bees were pollinating. These candles are made using the traditional candle-making technique of hand dipping, a time-consuming labor of love that involves repeatedly dipping wicks to build up each candle layer by layer.
MEET ZAFAR IQBAL
Zafar Iqbal is based in Islamabad, Pakistan. He has been working with bees for over 30 years focusing on both research and conservation of the current bee population in Pakistan. Honeybees play a crucial role in food security as they pollinate a third of the food that we eat but the bee population has been declining over the past decade largely because of climate change. Each purchase will help Dastaangoi fund honeybee research and production in Pakistan.
Dastaangoi was founded in 2020 by Amad & Waleeya Mian. The pair wanted to revive pride in Pakistani culture and the collaborative tradition of storytelling. The core belief at Dastaangoi is that everything we make starts with a conversation, so they’ve been using their platform to promote a variety of creatives and storytellers from Pakistan and beyond to share inspiration and information.
