FlashPoint Candle, a leader in creative candle décor and design for inside and outside of the home, is releasing a 100% USA hand-made candle line called TRIO. TRIO is the result of a newly formed partnership between Nashville-based FlashPoint Candle and Rowe Pottery Works, a boutique pottery company based in Cambridge, Wisconsin.
The TRIO line comes at a time when many retailers are looking for 100% USA made product. “Often candle companies state USA made on their labels, but the vessels are usually made off-shore. We are proud to say that TRIO is hand thrown in Wisconsin and hand poured in Ohio. It doesn’t get more USA than that!” says Drea Groeschel, founder and CEO of FlashPoint Candle.
The price of the TRIO will be suggested at $39.99, a bit higher than the average gift candle seen in a glass or tin container, but very reasonable for a handmade luxury brand product. “I urge retailers and consumers alike to remember these candles have a handmade vessel thrown by master potters at Rowe Pottery, and each is food safe and can be used time and time again as a wonderful kitchen serving piece, making for a value added component and supporting USA jobs to boot!” Drea Groeschel remarks.
Each mini crock has a traditionally designed crock shape featuring a straight wall into a lip at the top as seen from historical USA pottery companies. Every crock is then dipped in layers to create a tri-colored effect. In keeping with the theme of three, each fragrance is a blended trio of three ingredients: Tea+ Lemon + Honey, Oakwood + Amber + Vanilla, and Sweet Olive + Ginger + Herbs. FlashPoint Candle will release three colors of TRIO at the Atlanta Market show: Slate Blue, Moss Green, and Caramel. All containers are reusable as serving ware; they are also dishwasher and microwave safe.
FlashPoint Candle distributes its products through leading landscape and garden retailers, furniture retailers and casual furniture specialists, gift and boutique stores, and e-commerce merchants.
