The Burlap Bag is a family affair, and the heart shines through. The Austinites behind this entertaining line opened up a shop for handmade goods in 2011. A year later, they started making candles for their store. Once they started giving them funny names, they couldn't make them as fast as they were selling! Shoppers fell hard for the high-quality, crafted-in-Austin candles with names like Clean Freak (rosemary and fig), Bossy Pants (an amazing combo of citrus, coconut, and cardamom), The Bee's Knees (oatmeal and honey), Unicorn Puke (cotton candy, natch), Gimme Coffee (self-explanatory), and limited-edition monthly releases to keep your selection interesting.
Once word got out, buyers from other stores—and soon, other cities—started contacting them about selling the candles in their shops, too. Fast-forward eight years, and The Burlap Bag can be found in more than 700 stores. Let's add yours to that list, because you can feel good about carrying their products: The Burlap Bag’s candles are made with lead-free wicks and 100% natural, 100% plant-based soy wax from soybeans grown here in the U.S. No animal products, no petroleum. It's biodegradable and made from a renewable resource. And the cherry on the candle cake? FLAT-RATE SHIPPING in the Continental U.S.!
