Deliciously scented eco-friendly vegan candles, made lovingly by a specialist in scent.

The Wilton Street Craft Co. is a Manchester based purveyor of beautifully handcrafted vegan candles, led by Emma and her trusty sausage dog, Lady.

We do candles differently.
We give you unique scents.
We believe in high quality.
We only use ethically sourced ingredients.
We value the environment.
We take care of 'me time'.
We also just happen to be vegan.

All our candles are hand poured in small batches of 9-10, everything from wicking, to pouring, to labelling is done with the utmost attention, care and love; with Lady providing quality assurance. As specialists in scent we do all the blending ourselves using only essential oils. We take inspiration from the world around us, favourite drinks, amazing travels, nature and favourite, nostalgic smells. You'll find all our packaging is made from recycled paper and is recyclable, even our glass jars can be washed out and repurposed.

Using soy wax, essential oils, cotton wicks and absolutely no additives we can give you a candle suitable for vegans and everyone else who shares our values.

The Wilton Street Craft Co. was born out of adversity and serendipity. Emma is a qualified doctor who become unwell with depression and was no longer able to keep well working in that profession. Turning to her other passions, namely creativity, nice smells, and getting a bit messy, she discovered a talent as a mixologist of scents. Having always had a love for candles it was a natural progression into candle making. Bringing with her a precision and attention to detail from her work as a doctor, a keen nose for a good scent, and a commitment to eco friendly, high quality ingredients, she created a range of scented candles bearing the logo of her business partner and best friend, Lady.

    I like chocolate, the odd G&T, and all things sausage dog related. Everything is designed, developed and made by me. If you see us at fairs or chat to us via email/phone it will be me you speak to (unless Lady has stolen my phone again, it happens).

    Lady is the 4 legged, wet nosed helper of the company. She likes scrambled eggs, biscuits, cuddles and sleeping. She is a very discerning dog and so provides us with an excellent quality assurance service.

Care instructions

Always trim the wick 5mm before lighting or relighting your candle.
Place your candle on a flat, stable, and heat-resistant surface.
Keep the candle free from foreign materials such as burnt matches or wick trimmings; these will discolour the wax and cause a fire hazard.
Keep your candles clear of curtains or other flammable materials and try to avoid locations where a draught may affect the flame.
Space your candles apart if you are burning more than one at the same time.
Lady advises you keep burning candles out of reach of pets and children.

Burn Guide

When lighting your candle for the first time burn until the melt pool has reached the edges of the glass, before extinguishing.
For best results allow a candle to be lit for 3-4 hours at a time.
Always burn your candle within sight, never leave unattended.
