About Us

MORE THAN JUST A CANDLE COMPANY. WE ARE A CREATIVE MAKING STUDIO

AMAKHI is a creative making studio; it literally means "to create". We believe there is something powerful in making something with your hands and having the guts to share what you’ve made with the world. Our story began in 2013 in a small studio in London, England. With only one desk and next to no free time, we started making things.

We combine artistic design with high quality products that are handmade in small batches (and we mean small – usually 20 per batch).  Our products are inspired by what we see and interact with everyday. Each product represents what we love and what we are curious about: travel, design, skincare, art, and soul music.

We believe in quality and creating unique products that are artistic masterpieces. We operate on a – now you see it, now you don’t – basis. Our creations are seasonal and change depending on what makes us curious at that particular moment. Make sure you check back often to see what we have in stock. Better yet, sign up to our mailing list so that you never miss a beat.

 

It was in 2016 when I first thought about opening an online store. As a lawyer, I was initially interested in creating a place to express my creative curiosity because my day job didn’t offer me much time or exposure to creativity. I started AMAKHI in February 2013.  Its first iteration was as a lifestyle and travel blog. After practicing law for many years, I started to feel disempowered and disengaged from my creativity. I felt I had a lot to offer creatively but did not have the confidence to explore it. I realised that having a blog wasn’t enough for me anymore. I wanted to make things. Real products. Starting a creative - making studio seemed like a logical progression. And so AMAKHI evolved into a making studio."
