About us

Svartsjö Ljus & Slöjd is an family-owned business from 1995. The art of candlemaking is already in the third generation in our family. Anders grandma, she was the wife of a priest, was the first one who began with the candelmaking. Anders mother continued, in the beginning of the 70-tieth, with the familytradition in a larger style.
She was the one, who experimentated and invented a new mixture of the candles, which we also today still use. This mixture is from topmost quality and gives the candles a clear and fineness flame and a long time burnlength.
We create and mould all our candles by hand in traditional way, without machines or technical mould. A few candles have a traditional, others have a modern form. Also we develop permanently new forms.

Best wishes, Carina and Anders Bernfeldt
