No.19 Old Manila in Concrete

Sale price Price ₱1,350.00 Regular price

Old Manila poured in a concrete vessel made in collaboration with Krete, a local maker of minimalist concrete home pieces

Inspired by the opening chapter of Noli me Tangere by Jose Rizal, Old Manila is our first foray into literature-inspired candles. It's an interpretation of Kapitan Tiyago's grandiose house on Calle Anloague in Binondo and, with intrigue, explores how it might have felt to live (and love) inside and around the walls of old colonial Manila town.​ With romantic and jazzy notes of vetiver, cedar and rose.
