LICHT - UP & DOWN MENORAH
At Chai Modern, we relish our partnership with African Creative, from whom we source our exquisite, handcrafted menorahs.
African Creative was founded in 2004, and invests in environmentally responsible and socially ethical production. What started in Cape Town has spread throughout South Africa, and far further across the African continent. African Creative has curated a catalogue of authentic African masterpieces, each handcrafted by African talents with bold designs and a distinctive African aesthetic. The skills of each of these craftspeople are encouraged to blossom to their full potential, with emphasis placed on their sustainable livelihoods.
African Creative is honing craftsmanship in Africa while making a real difference in local communities. Their upliftment efforts make us at Chai Modern proud to stock their handcrafted, wire menorahs in our Licht Collection of four chic, contemporary styles, each with a distinct African flare.
Creativity takes courage. Each of our handcrafted menorahs is as unique and bold as the hands that crafted it. And yet, we strive to ensure a similarity and consistency across our range.
As each piece is handmade, the candle holder size might vary slightly from one to the other. If the candle does not fit perfectly in the holder, we suggest that you stick each candle in with it's own melted wax. Melt the bottom of the candle with the flame of another candle. Once the wax drops in the holder, hold the candle in place for a few seconds until the wax cools and hardens and the candle is secure.
To remove the wax, soak the holder part in hot water until the wax melts away. Any wax residue can then be wiped away with a soft cloth. Do not use anything abrasive, that can scratch the surface.
We hope that when you light your candles you feel as blessed by your menorahs as African Creative and Chai Modern have felt in creating it for you!
