OUR STORY
 
TWIG PEA

 Twig Pea was created in 2020 with a focus on ethically sourced and eco-friendly products. 

All of our candles and wax melts are hand-poured in small batches in Stockport, Cheshire.

ECO | ETHICAL | SMALL

  • We use the highest quality soy wax, which is naturally sourced by soya bean oil, and is an extremely environmentally friendly and sustainable alternative to other varieties of wax.

  • Our wicks are made from pure long strand ring spun cotton and paper.

  • Our care cards and logo's are made from recycled paper.

  • Our packaging tubes are made from 80% recycled paper and are 100% biodegradable.

  • Our candle jars, kraft tubes and pillow boxes can be recycled or upcycled.

Ethical sourcing is very important to us and therefore this is high on the agenda when we are sourcing our ingredients and packaging. We work with like-minded businesses to ensure our products are sustainably sourced and cruelty-free. We would never knowingly purchase any ingredients or packaging from a company that tested on animals or was involved in unethical activity. 

"When you shop from a small business an actual person does a happy dance". This quote cannot be any more true - all of our candles and wax melts are hand poured by a single person and made in small batches - there is so much love and care that goes in to every single one of our products, and every single order means the world to us. Being a small business ourselves, we believe it is so important to shop small and support local businesses where we can. Therefore if we can source our products locally, we will!

Shop local, shop small!

MEET THE MAKER

Hello ~

I'm Loren - the face behind Twig Pea, and I run this little business from my home in Stockport, Cheshire. 

All candles and wax melts are designed, hand poured and packaged by me.

A little about me... I grew up in a little town by the seaside in Lincolnshire, but after university I made the move to Manchester (being a city girl at heart) and have settled down here and bought my first home.

I've always had a love for candles and decided to turn a hobby in to a business to run alongside my full-time job in Human Resources.

The name 'Twig Pea' is a combination of two of my childhood nicknames 'Twiggy' & 'Peanut'
