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.
We believe our products should be nothing short of exceptional. Everyone at Shearer Candles is personally responsible for achieving outstanding quality; whether they are sourcing materials, representing our brand, or testing, making and packing our products.
Throughout our long history, Shearer Candles has always been family run. When the last of the Shearers retired in 1972, the Barnet family took to the helm, and is proud to now be in our third generation.
Today our customers include leading retailers, hotels and restaurants, not to mention the candle lovers of all persuasions who can’t help but fall for our beautifully crafted candle collections.
