Invented in 1900, the Bougies la Francaise perforated candles or “bougies trouées” were the first candles with internal perforations. As the candle burns, the wax fills the perforations to burn later instead of running down the outside. The result is a candle that burns longer with less wax.

We are amazed every time we receive new Beauvillé tea towels at how beautiful they are. The colors, the artwork, and the quality of the printing are just so splendidly over the top for something so utilitarian as a kitchen towel! Located in Alsace, France, Beauvillé block prints their designs by hand on linen-blend toweling. Opening a new box from Beauvillé feels like Christmas morning. Speaking of which, we received several beautiful Christmas-themed towels in this shipment. Here are some of their designs.
