CANDLES WITH A CONSCIENCE

Discover the raw beauty of discarded glass, handcrafted into functional works of art. Completely vegan and cruelty free our candles containing only natural wax giving you every reason to feel good about spoiling yourself. 

WINE NOT

WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT US IS THAT OUR DIFFERENCE MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Unfortunately, billions of wine bottles are buried in landfill every year. What’s worse is they take more than a million years to decompose!! we were pretty surprised too. We wanted to find a sustainable way to reuse these bottle and clear the earth of all that buried glass. 

In 2010, with the help of some pretty creative souls Unwined began production and 10 years later we are still creating high quality candles from wine bottles. 

Our journey would not have been successful without the support of individuals (like yourself) that have purchased our products, shared our story and helped us to reduce our local footprint. At Unwined we will continue to find new ways to repurpose wine bottles, utilising the discarded to create products for you to enjoy. 

As frustrating as it is to see every candle, bottle and jar being made from new glass the truth is it’s cheaper and easier and it won’t stop unless we question it. 

The journey at Unwined has been challenging and we've had many set backs along the way. We’ve had to reinvent traditional candle making techniques by persisting with ingredients that are the safest & purest. We wanted our loved ones and pets to be surrounded by the cleanest possible alternative. 


We formulated a candle that aligns with every sustainable standard, has a long clean 70+ hour burn with incredible hot & cold scent throw, no black residue or soot and is smoke free. They contain only 100% natural soy wax are proudly vegan friendly, cruelty free & contain absolutely zero paraffin, palm oil or dyes.

Our products will not only challenge the way you look at recycled glass, they will inspire you to see a renewed beauty in the discarded, oh & help you to Unwined of course.

  • At Unwined Candle Company

  • It ain’t all glamorous, we really have no way for it to be, we collect all our bottles from the local tip & sticky crates from nightclubs in the wee hours. We then cut, bevel, clean and polish by hand before (our fav part) pouring small batches of creamy wax over all cotton wicks. Ok that does sound a little worse than it really is.
