About Us

We are a small family-run business based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Initially set up by myself, Shona, with the help of my husband, Phil, and our two daughters.

Our love of candles goes back more than 10 years, when we first started trading as Vaseworks, supplying candles with an aesthetic accompaniment of dried fruit and/or flowers in hand blown glass vases.

Always on the lookout for something new, we identified a gap in the market for multi-wick candles. We decided we wanted to offer something different from a single-wick candle in a glass jar as there are already so many gorgeous products in this category. We were captured by the idea of combining beautiful ceramics with high quality candles, creating a product that is yours to cherish long after the candle is finished.

And so, Alina Candles was born. Our unique multi-wick candles are hand poured in Devon, in a reactive glazed earthenware bowl from a small artisan company in the Alcobaça region of Portugal, world famous for its stunning ceramics.

We hope you love our candles as much as we do.
