Featured Soy Wax Candles

Chicago Candle Factory began as a sustainable art project in a kitchen, and we’re proud to say we’ve remained one through our first stages of growth. The driving principle of this business is sustainability.  Our candles are made in bottles we’ve salvaged from Chicago’s bars and restaurants and upcycled into functional art pieces that fill the home with pleasing aromas, warming light, and a little local flavor.

Using salvaged bottles allows us to actively reduce waste while maintaining an artistic commitment to craftsmanship, creativity—and a bit of the unexpected.  We collect bottles from Fountainhead and Delilahs, they have over 1500 bottles behind their bars combined; Compass Bar, L n L, Honky Tonk BBQ, The Map Room, and so many others also provide tons of craft beers and all the other good stuff this city of ours loves to drink… Malort!?!  Whatever, we got em.  The random supply actually makes it pretty cool when you think about it.  It’s like a little surprise for yourself, you pick the size and scent, and we’ll make you a candle that you know you’ll love, you just don’t know exactly what it will look like.  We’re sure you’ll savor the candle for a long time.
