About Ivy & Wood
Founded in 2016, Ivy & Wood is run by partners, Jess & Brad, who make all products by hand in their north Brisbane workshop. Jess started out making a small batch of candles in the kitchen and gifted them to friends and family. After receiving a great response, she hatched the idea of starting a business.
Off they went to the markets and from there the business grew, until Jess quit her corporate career in 2017 and they hustled hard until Brad joined Ivy & Wood full time in 2018. Brad is now head of production (AKA chief candlemaker) and Jess focuses on product development, sales, marketing and order fulfilment. As a small business, they both have many roles to play!
Part of their essential daily routine is to walk their two greyhounds morning and night without fail. No matter how busy you get, it is important to take a break, stretch the legs, get some fresh air and have a little family time.
Embracing simplicity and nature, Ivy & Wood draws inspiration from nature, in particular, Australia's native flora.
We collaborate with Australian artists to bring our ranges to life and showcase their talented work.
All of our products are hand poured in Brisbane, Australia, using only the best ingredients:
- eco-friendly soy coconut wax
- pure cotton wicks
- high quality fragrance oils
- quality glass jars
Soy candles burn at least 50% longer and cleaner than paraffin candles, and burn evenly so there is little wax left on the side of the jar.
Our mason jars are reusable as well, so once you're finished simply wash out with hot soapy water and you have a new jar to store things in!
