Get to Know Us

Our Mission

We want to rethink how home goods are made and their aesthetic so we’ve started with a collection of candles. We want not only to be the best smelling candles, we also want to be the best candles visually. We have come up with a unique selection of beautiful geometric shapes that look amazing standing solo or in combination, as you make your own mini art installation.

Embla candles are a great conversation starter. However, we’re not just about conversation, we’re about conservation as well. In our continuous efforts for sustainability, we have invented Embla Tokens, the metal pieces at the bottoms of our candles. Collect five and send them back to us for recycling. In return, we’ll reward you with a free candle of the same design. Embla candles don’t come with jars, plastic wrapping, any other unnecessary accoutrements. Our minimalist packaging not only beautifully designed, it is also made from thoughtfully sourced materials that are recyclable and biodegradable as well. At Embla, all you get is a beautiful, sustainable, next-level candle.

All Embla candles are made from 100% beeswax, being the highest quality, longest burning and only hypoallergenic candle material there is. Bees are not just a big part of what we do, they are also crucial for the survival of our ecosystem. This is so important to us that we are donating 10% of every Embla candle sold to Planet Bee Foundation, a non-profit organization that teaches children how to save the bees.

It’s our forward thinking and ceaseless commitment to quality that seems to set us apart and keeps the fire inside us burning. By debunking existing myths about candle making and making up new rules of our own, we strive to push the artform forward. We have embraced major technological advancements by using 3D printing to help us get our unique shapes, and Augmented Reality to let you preview these shapes in your space and how they look with your existing décor. Our candles are all designed, developed and produced in-house to take the quality of candle making to the next level.

The Embla Story

Embla Home was founded by Greg Perkins and Evgenia Valieva after they crossed paths while studying art in San Francisco. They found common ground through their love for modern home goods. The Embla team loved the charm a candle can bring to any interior space, and so they decided to design their own. It was through harnessing old-world techniques with the latest 3D printing technology that the first line of Embla Home candles was born. Since then, the company has expanded its creative vision to encompass the whole home. Inspired by the minimalist Scandinavian aesthetic with a touch of modern geometry, Embla Home now features a carefully curated selection of wall art, dinnerware, vases and planters, and other home goods perfect for the curious, contemporary, and constantly evolving homeowner and tastemaker.
