MO MAN TAI / gradient candle rainy grey
by MO MAN TAI
Mo Man Tai gradient candle rainy grey
The gradient trend has been the inspiration for this product. It is the finishing touch for a stylish table decoration.
These candles have a handmade blend of different shades of grey.
In 2014, we improved the Gradient Candles and took them into production with professionals from the Bolsius group.
The result: a 100% handmade paraffin wax candle in the original design of mo man tai; produced in Roermond by the Dutch traditional candle manufacturer ‘Kaarsenfabriek Hoogeland-Kristen’.
