ester & erik is a family-owned company that has been making high-quality candles since 1987. Since then, the logo with the heart in the middle has been ester & erik’s trademark – an icon reflecting the couple’s fondness for each other, and in particular for candles, craftsmanship and the quality behind their vision. A vision of creating warmth, joy and life through the candles which they have invented, produced and developed themselves for two generations.
All ester & erik candles are produced at our factory in Silkeborg, Denmark. The entire production line is organised around the fact that two factors are key to producing well-performing candles: the quality of the raw materials and the final appearance of the candles.
Their candles are natural products made from wax, wick and dye of the highest quality – the same raw materials we have been using since the company was established in 1987. The candles are made from 100% paraffin wax of the purest quality available, which can be heated and used without the need to add any artificial ingredients. The wick is made of 100% pure cotton, while both the dyes and lacquers are water-based and therefore contain neither acetone nor aniline.
