The Screen Printed Characters
Are illustrated by the artist Zineb Benjelloun.
The Illustrations are reminiscent of at the games and memories of childhood in Morocco. M'goun, Hafa, Oum Rabie… Each of the candles comes to life as characters inspired by Spanish playing cards, popular for generations in Morocco.
Each Ulili candle is made with vegetal waxes and beeswax. All candles are paraffin free. Ulili candles are designed to create a strong, yet delicate release of its fragrances as well as a harmonious melting of the waxes.
Each piece undergoes several oven firings and hand manipulations for the lacquering and screen printing. The crackles on our chalices are obtained thanks to "Raku", a Japanese technique used in Pottery.
