Since 1902, the history of Bougies la Française has been a family story, written with passion and dedication by women and men who devote their craftsmanship and perfected handiwork to the creation of candles. Candle making is an ancient, unique, and rare craft. At the “Manufacture des Lumières” candle factory near Nantes, five generations of master wax pullers make dreams come true with their sense of beauty and know-how developed over the decades. A unique craftsmanship rewarded with the “Entreprise Du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV)” or “Living Heritage” label – a recognition of excellence and typically French creativity that distinguishes a company that successfully combines production with added value, passion, and innovation.
