THE FEEL GOOD FACTOR
You should know that our goodies are...
Vegan & Non-Toxic
All our candles are made using natural coconut wax and a cotton braid wick for toxins-free burning. Our fragrances are Paraben and phthalate free.
Every candle is handmade in small batches. We pride ourselves in selecting fragrances that are unique yet familiar. Our goal is to make your favourite candle ever.
We believe in supporting Canadian business, and always choose local when possible! (Almost) everything we use to create our goods is made right here in Canada.
Makers of your new favourite candle.
The Brwn Collective is a small, Black woman owned home goods brand based in Toronto, Canada. It was formed on the belief that we are happiest when we are surrounded by people and things that make us feel good about ourselves.
We know candles aren't the key to happiness, but our hope is that they add a smile to your day. Our goods are handmade in small batches. Every piece is carefully-crafted with love.
MEET THE FOUNDER
"Brwn Collective is a marriage between two passions of mine: social justice and being a creative."
Sagal Ali launched Brwn Collective at the height of the pandemic as a form of self-care and with the hope that her candles bring a little joy in a particularly difficult time.
In her day job, Sagal is a diversity and inclusion manager where much of her focus is on creating spaces where people feel welcomed, heard and valued.
"We all know how good it feels to be included and even celebrated. It's a joyful sense of belonging," she said. "I try to recreate that feeling for people with everything I make. Even if it's just a candle!"
