Established in 1897, Shearer Candles is a leading creator and purveyor of artisan candles and scented products. Working with only the purest ingredients and inspired by our beautiful surroundings here in Scotland, our goal is to continually exceed the expectations of our customers around the world by delivering superior quality and exceptional choice.
As the oldest producer of lifestyle candles in the UK, everything we do is underpinned by a long tradition of Scottish candle making. Our founders Mr Shearer and Mr Harvey initially worked in the Candleriggs area (one of Glasgow’s oldest streets and its historic home of candle making) before opening their own factory on the city outskirts over 120 years ago. Today, our founders would be astonished to see our factory full of cutting-edge candle making technology, and to know that Shearer Candles are popular the world over. Whilst much has changed, Shearer Candles are still recognised for our artisanal approach, attention to detail and craftsmanship.
