Candles with a story

Before electricty reached most houses in Barcelona, when the night came the vigilant or sereno gave you a piece of lighten rope candle to light the stairs up to your door. The vigilant, who held spare front door keys to most apartments and shops, used to watch out for the barrio’s tranquility at night and he would carry this rope candle in order to cut it and light it up whenever a neighbour would need it.

In Cerabella we have turned this rope candle into a flexible birthday candle that can be cut into different sizes and given funny shapes to decorate the cake. Such a playful time before blowing out the candles!
