The story behind avalon
Well, where do we start?
The Lockdowns imposed on us throughout the covid pandemic afforded us all a little more time to ourselves, but for us one thing was kept in common. Whether It was watching Tiger king for the 4th time or attempting to bake yet another sourdough loaf we always had a candle burning.
By the time we reached the third lockdown, we'd amassed quite an impressive collection of candle glasses that were all going to be recycled, it's fantastic that they can be recycled but what a waste of energy when all we really need is more wax? We then decided to have a go ourselves at making our own sustainable home fragrance and cutting out the bin man.
We ultimately came up with our Camelot Candle collection. A range of candles varying in size and volume with the ability to be refilled by slotting in a new cylinder of wax that we also create.
Then, unfortunately, I lost my job in January. After a few weeks of feeling sorry for myself and lining the pockets of several pizza delivery companies, we used this as the fire we needed to continue to make this a success.
Since we launched our home fragrance collections in March 2021, we've received the most fantastic response we could've imagined. We've been showcased in stores in Brighton and London's Covent Garden as well as being asked to feature in British Vogue for three issues.
We've accomplished so much and yet we've only just started, the reign of Avalon is yet to come and we can't wait to share this amazing experience with you all.
Thank you all so much for your support and feedback.
