Founded in 1897 by Mr Shearer and Mr Harvey on the outskirts of Glasgow, Shearer Candles is the UK's longest established lifestyle candle company. Messrs Shearer and Harvey had worked as chandlers in the Candleriggs district, historically the heart of candle making. At that time, customers still bought their ingredients before the candles were made to order.
Throughout its long history the business has always been family run. When the last of the Shearers retired in 1972 the present owners, the Barnet family, took over and is now in its third generation. While much has changed, the artisanal approach, attention to detail and craftsmanship first pioneered by Mr Shearer and Mr Harvey still underpin everything we do.
Over a century later, Shearer Candles prides itself on delivering high quality candles that contain only the finest ingredients. We’re still a family business, but our customers today 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.
As the oldest producer of lifestyle candles in the UK, at Shearer Candles we are upholding a long tradition of Scottish Candle Making — witness the fact that Candleriggs, built in 1724, is one of the oldest streets in Glasgow. It's also where our business began — the original owners first worked here before opening their own factory on the city outskirts in 1897.
Today, over 115 years later, they 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. We source our waxes from across Europe and our scents from France and the United States and the raw materials that we use are certified to the highest standard.
Taking an average of six months from drawing board to first flame, we don't rush things. Each candle has its own recipe that takes into account the reactions between shapes, waxes & scents. Whether we are creating chandelier candles, scented candles, or filled glasses, our inspiration comes from the colours, forms and fragrances found in the distinctive Scottish landscape.
