In Swahili, Mshumaa is a candle or light source. It is also a company founded in 2017 by artist and designer Ron Norsworthy that makes made-to-order, luxury scented candles, right here in the hills of Litchfield County, Connecticut. Fortunately for us, Mshumaa has made a collection of Bespoke candles exclusively for Privet House. Each candle is hand-poured in a faceted ceramic vessel with bronze interior, and presented in a lovely corrugated gift box, complete with black grosgrain bow….it is the perfect present.
