PRICKLY CACTUS is a brand of handcrafted scented soy candles and scented matches. We aim to engage the customer and help to provide relaxation through humor, enjoyable illustrative work, and uniquely crafted goods that accompany everyone of our products. The candles are 100% handcrafted (created with PRICKLY CACTUS natural soy) and the matches were carved with the intention of lighting our taller glasses. The whole basis of the brand is to engage our audience, show them how cool life can be and make them feel loved, if we cannot accomplish a feat such as this, we are the real PRICKS.
PRICKLY CACTUS brand products are unique because all elements that come with the products were handcrafted. Each candle is poured with our wax, then wrapped in our signature pattern which was laser printed onto sun stained newsprint. From there the products are placed in their own distinctive dust bags which were hand sewn and silk screen printed to give them an identity.
