Born amid the Covid-19 lockdown in 2020 as a venture set up by Jannatul Fatema Nowshin, Moonlight is more than just a candle business. It is a passion project that eventually blossomed into a unique brand that specialises in sculptural candles inspired by Greek sculptures and mythology.
"Our candles are not just decorative pieces; they are works of art that tell stories. Each candle captures the essence of classical beauty, allowing you to bring a touch of history and mythology into your everyday life. What sets us apart is that, in the beginning, there was no other brand doing exactly what we do, making us pioneers in this niche," said Nowshin.
Moonlight embraces the beauty of imperfection, knowing that is what makes each candle truly special. No two pieces are the same, ensuring each item is one of a kind.
Being committed to quality that extends beyond aesthetics, the brand uses premium materials and employs sustainable practices to create candles that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also eco-friendly.
