About us

Our company »PAX- candles Stele« has been succesfully carrying on the tradition which began as early as 1701 when our family engaged in chandlery and selling of honey and sweet meatsmade with honey. Till the beginning of the 20th century raw materials for candles had been considerably different from those used today. Candles were made of wax and tallow. Later we started to use pure bees wax,and gradually added stearin and paraffin which were cheaper and more combustible.

Plečnik’s candles

In June 1950 an important event took place which influenced not only our family but also the entire Slovene history of art. A family friend – the architect Jože Plečnik, whose works of art had won worldwide acclaim, initiated the production of candles decorated with different motifs cast in wax.

These casts were made with models which were once used for dough. The first such candle was made by our company under Plečnik’s guidance in 1951 for the writer Fran Saleški Finžgar on the occasion of his 80th birthday. The idea turned out to be a success, so we still produce candles according to Plečnik’s conception, and we are proud of this.
