Light these set of 7 Kwanzaa Taper Candles to authentically observe this holiday. The set of candles is made with paraffin wax, 100% cotton wicks, and are hand painted in a rural village in South Africa.

Each candle will vary.

These candles are special. Not just red, black and green but carved with designs.

These candles are as pretty in my home as they are on the store website. In addition, I like the idea of supporting the arts from a rural village in South Africa.
