When we first got our hands on these Deckle and Hide candles, we fell in love with the amazing scent it filled the studio with. (Everyone who entered told us it smelt like a spa!) Originally it was just for our smelling pleasure but then we realised even people from the other stores in the street wanted to get their hands on the candles so we decided to start selling them in the Bloesem shop too! We wanted to share the wondrous smells with everyone and so far the candles have been a hit.
Besides their lovely candles, Deckle and Hide also carries a range of locally (in Australia) hand crafted leather goods. Many of their products are made-to-order. (Saw a beautiful back pack they made specially for a customer on their instagram!)
Very much inspired by the natural concept behind Deckle and Hide's products, we went back to nature with this shoot! And Zara did an amazing job styling and photographing the Deckle and Hide collection. I'm so blessed to have her in my team!
Their leather goods are made from full grain, vegetable tanned bovine hide and kangaroo leather laced detailing for strength and durability. Then they are conditioned with natural oil and finished with beeswax. The leather develops its own unique, aged patina through use as they are not dyed.
Other than their stress-relieving scent, they are made from 100% natural ingredients! Anne and Luke first realised that burning many candles you see in stores could be detrimental to health because of all the toxic chemical in them so they decided they come up with their own line of 100% botanical candles that they would be able to enjoy without causing any harm to the little ones in the family.
