The Candlemakers

Woodlot The Candlemakers

Sonia Chhinji and Fouad Farraj grew up in two different worlds. Sonjia was raised in Vancouver’s budding metropolis making tea-lights and handmade cottons wicks with her mother and grandmother. Fouad Farraji grew up in the beautiful mediterranean country of Lebanon and at a very early age learned the craft of soap making. 

They met in 2011 and after a short while of selling candles to family and friends they decided to launch Woodlot in early 2014. Fouad’s body of experience had been in soap, but the couple felt that by starting with candles (something they both loved) that they could quickly bring enjoyment and tranquility to peoples homes.
