    Beginning with a design concept, the artisans here at the candle factory collaborate on the look and develop the details. Elegant details, like those on our Tuscan Cask, are hand-sculpted by skilled craftspeople and turned into molds for the wax.

    The Cactus Candle collection (above, and at right) is an old favorite - we have been making these candles for over 25 years. Even though they represent a Southwest style, because they have such attention to detail, they are popular all over the country.

    Our company is known as the “first name in floating candles” and our Unscented Waterlily (below) is wonderful for romantic settings. From the desert to the sea, from coast to coast, we have quite a selection to add that perfect touch to your special event or gift. Be sure to see all of our Floating Candles...perfect for parties.

    What makes a candle great? It’s about commitment to quality.

    Commitment to quality means using the best ingredients available. Clean burning, highly refined waxes; tightly woven cotton wick; finely manufactured dyes produce vibrant stable color and superior fragrance oils to project a rich aroma.

    Commitment to quality means creativity. We develop proprietary original designs and molds for shapes both beautiful and functional. Our colors reflect our attention to contemporary trends with absolutely wonderful fragrance or no fragrance at all.

    Commitment to quality means craftsmanship at the hands of skilled artisans because experienced hands, not machines, pour wax with precision. Careful eyes watch small details as each candle is finished because we know that your gift reflects your careful choice and your special event reflects your sense of style.

    Candlelight is a part of home decor - now more than ever - an affordable luxury to add that special touch to parties and special occasions. We are committed to bringing quality candle performance combined with artisan designs and a sincere and honest attempt to meet your needs and delight you with something above and beyond expectations - whenever possible. This culture has enabled Armadilla Wax Works to survive and thrive in this competitive marketplace.
