Star Trading in cooperation with Skandilock, both based in Svenljunga, has developed a candlestick with ties to local traditions of leather craft while it captures the modern interior design trends. The candlestick Svenljunga will be in stores in time for Advent.

Over 200 years ago a tradition of tanning was formed in Svenljunga, Sweden. The village was a crossroads where local farmers would meet at cattle markets. This in turn inspired the development of a tanning industry for processing the hides. In the 1930s a company was formed which later became Skandilock AB, now one of Europe’s leading producers of designer sheep skin products, with all products meeting high ethical standards.

When Star Trading, also based in Svenljunga, wanted to create a candlestick with genuine sheep skin it was therefore only natural to seek cooperation with Skandilock. The award-winning designer Charlotte Falck has worked together with Star Trading for many years. She was inspired by the unique history of Svenljunga to create this candlestick which combines modern and classical design and connects with the village’s traditions – the candlestick Svenljunga. Svenljunga is available in the colors white stained, black stained and espresso and is also equipped with eco-friendly LED lighting.
