Nestled on a farm in the heart of North Cornwall, St. Eval sustainably craft high-quality candles using a blend of traditional and contemporary methods, perfecting the art and science of high-quality candle-making for over 28 years.
In recognition of their commitment to protecting the environment, in 2021 St. Eval were honoured with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development. The first ever Queen’s Award to be presented to a candle manufacturer, this honour represents the highest accolade for business success and sustainable practices.
People and planet lie at the heart of St. Eval who are delighted to release their new Love, Hope & Freedom candle collection featuring a trio of gorgeous tins, working in collaboration with Falmouth University illustration students and UK charity Unseen.
Tasking third-year BA (Hons) Illustration students at Falmouth University, St. Eval sought to give the up-and-coming creative talent in Cornwall the opportunity to design labels for this exciting new collection. The winning designs embody the fun and nature connected essence of St. Eval whilst being symbolic of the important charity and social messages in their themes.
Unseen are a UK anti-slavery charity who provide safe houses and support in the community for survivors of trafficking and modern slavery. In awe of their amazing services and keen to support their work, St. Eval have released this special limited-edition collection inspired by the positive changes that Unseen bring to the lives of those affected by modern day slavery.
For every candle sold from St. Eval’s Love, Hope & Freedom collection, £1 is donated directly to Unseen to further support their inspiring work and helping to influence positive change. Here are just some of the ways this money will help:
- £13 could provide a week’s worth of warm nourishing food to a safehouse resident
- £26 could pay for phone calls home to loved ones, letting them know they’re safe
- £95 could pay for a photography workshop for 5 survivors, building self-esteem and providing escapism
Smell is a strong sense, powerfully acting on the limbic part of our brain which controls emotions, memories and stimulation. When we surround ourselves with beautiful scents from nature, we can evoke wonderful feelings, helping to improve both wellbeing and happiness – that is the essence of a St. Eval candle.
St. Eval continue to create new and exciting candles and fragrances, inspired by nature and following their core values; to protect, nurture and respect each other and the earth. St. Eval’s Love, Hope & Freedom Collection is available to purchase on their website, www.st-eval.com, or through your local St. Eval stockist.
