Uplifting inner city neighborhoods, one candle at a time
Paige’s Candle Co candles are hand made with vegan soy wax and a blend of phthalate-free fragrance and essential oils. Our fragrance blends are hand crafted in the Queens and Brooklyn boroughs of New York City. A portion of sales are donated to offer free candle making workshops to New York City non-profit organizations.
During the COVID-19 crisis, a portion of sales were donated to City Harvest, a non-profit organization helping to feed hungry New Yorkers in need.
About the Founder
Paige's Candle Co was created by Paige Graham, a born & raised New Yorker originally from an inner-city neighborhood in The Bronx, NY. After losing her mother at a young age, Paige’s father involved her in various art programs as a way to find positive self-expression. Inspired by the art programs of her youth, Paige contributes to improve low-income neighborhoods through the arts by donating candle making classes to various non-profit organizations in New York City.
Paige first discovered the art of candle making in 2011. Since then, she has become a strong believer that access to natural products should not be constrained by ones zip code. Through her craft, Paige seeks to create products that contribute towards a positive and healthy lifestyle accessible to everyone.
“I help create artistically stimulating environments for low-income New York City residents who want to explore creative outlets and generally do not have access to them. I am most proud of my ability to develop unique vegan candles and share my craft with others. When you purchase from Paige’s Candle Co, you’re helping to invest in equity and accessibility to art education”
