After spending the last decade working in hospitality, I became fascinated with the industry, and concerned about the bigger environmental issues around the waste created in the food and beverage sector. I decided to take it upon myself to create high quality, sustainable and beautiful products out of excess materials. And thus, Wax / Wine was born, contributing to the circular economy and minimising waste.
I collect and repurpose natural wine bottles from bars and restaurants in east London, and turn them into something new. I am inspired by the biodynamic practice found in winemaking which works alongside the lunar calendar, mirroring the waxing and waning of the moon - a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, which is a recurring theme of Wax / Wine as a business model.
All natural, naturally
Nothing but natural ingredients are used in the making process of our products: the best quality plant based wax, 100% essential oils, cork lids and crackling wooden wicks. Our products are not only eco-friendly and sustainable, but also toxin free. We believe strongly in working with nature, and not against it. Like in our favourite wines, no nasties are added!
Our product range includes glasses, lamps, candles, home décor, and more. The idea to minimise carbon footprint and reduce waste by repurposing glass bottles into highly appealing lifestyle products is our passion and our mission.
