We created Unwined L.A. Studio with the motivation of upcycling existing glass bottles into sustainable home décor objects. We are focusing on candles and plan to develop other creations in the future. Our top priority is to deliver unique and ethical products.
Our unique candle vessels
We enjoy very much the organic process that starts with drinking a wide selection of wines, Champagne, liquor and various other drinks. As much as we love this first step, our own consumption does not suffice to our production needs! We collect empty bottles from our neighbors and friends in Mar Vista, CA and adjacent local communities. We clean, cut and polish the edges of each bottle, one at a time to ensure a superior level of craftsmanship – all from our Mar Vista workshop.
We tested several waxes and decided on the cleanest and most sustainable wax we could find. We use a vegan blend of natural soy and coconut which has a creamy white appearance. It is gluten free, toxin free, paraben free, phthalate free and comes from renewable sources.
Our wooden wicks
We love the distinct crackling sound of a wooden wick when burning – we believe they create more ambiance. They don't "mushroom" the way cotton wicks do, which means minimal carbon buildup and minimal debris and sooting with the proper care. Our wooden wicks are sourced from FSC certified mills and manufactured in the USA, guaranteeing a natural and eco-friendly option.
We source sophisticated fragrances that are all phthalate free and created using a combination of natural fragrance oils and pure essential oils from around the globe.
Our labels and packaging
Our dust covers, safety and product labels are made from recycled Kraft card.
The twine we use to secure the fragrance label is made up with 100% natural jute twine which is bio-degradable and 100% eco-friendly.
Our product boxes and bags are made from recycled material and the protective paper packaging we use is 100% biodegradable and sustainable.
